Cooking has been very sporadic for me over the past few months (past year, really) but it really makes things more exciting when you stumble upon a “forever” recipe, one that you clearly see becoming a staple in your repertoire. This one-pot farro is DEFINITELY on that list.
I came across it during a routine perusal of Food52, and immediately knew I had to make it that night. The original recipe calls for mushrooms and kale, which will be happening in the future, but because I was cooking for bae and he’s not a mushroom fan, I went with my tried and true combo: sausage, kale and white beans (see also: this sauteed kale, this stuffed sweet potato). Cooking the farro risotto-style makes it creamy and hearty, but it’s still pretty healthy: full of vegetables, whole grains and a little bit of sausage for

The best part: it cooks in under an hour in only one pot. It’s the perfect weeknight recipe, especially as those chilly nights set in. This one’s a keeper! …
