Carrie's Vegetable Farro Soup

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by stacylu

My cousin Carrie made this for a family reunion. I'd never had farro before - it's a grain but this soup has won me over to it. It is supposedly one of the first grains discovered and the ancestor of modern wheat. It is said to have sustained the Roman legions as they conquered Europe.
