Almost sorry!

This almost makes me sorry that warm weather is coming! It is Farro stew, a favorite recipe from Heidi Swanson's new cookbook, Super Natural Every Day. I love this cookbook! It is full of delicious recipes and beautiful photos. This stew contains farro, sweet potatoes, lentils (I used lentils de puy) curry and onions. It is topped with yogurt mixed with fresh lemon zest and a drizzle of olive oil. Making big pots of soup while the wind is howling and the rain is lashing against the windows is one of my chief joys in life, and I always miss this when summer arrives! Fortunately, warm, sweet strawberries and juicy plums and tangy raspberries will be arriving soon, and that will make me as happy as soup makes me in the fall!


  1. I have had that cookbook on my Amazon wish list for awhile now and I really need to order it! The farro stew you made sounds out of this world.
    I hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day weekend.

  2. I feel the same way. Nothing is better on a cold miserable day than a steaming melty bowl of French onion soup.

  3. Oooooh! French Onion soup-that sounds so good! We have another cold, rainy day, so I might have to make some of that! Tracey, the cook book really is good. She uses some unusual ingredients that I don;t always have on hand (harissa, which I have never even found in my area) but she usually lists things you can use instead!
