My life with my farmer and our six children. Made possible by massive amounts of caffeine.

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!
