Recipe: Farro and Chickpea Soup :: Deborah Madison :: Culinate. This is so good & easy. I did use dried chickpeas & had some sage, I think that really kicked this up a notch. I used the farro that doesn't need to soak.
Curried Red Lentil and Swiss Chard Stew with Garbanzo Beans
Shchi has been a Russian staple for centuries for many reasons. It is very cheap, easily changed according to what ingredients are available, keeps well, and has many vitamins and minerals in each serving. It can be made with meat or vegetarian. This is my version of the recipe :)
