So I was having guests over for dinner last night and want to keep it simple. A good hearty bowl of soup, a salad, and a blackberry crumble. Nothing too crazy, right? After searching through my pantry and refrigerator, I discovered I had all the ingredients for a Tuscan White Bean Soup. I like this version using fresh Tuscan kale from my garden and healthy nutritious farro. Farro is an ancient grain that is high in fiber, protein and rich in B vitamins. I like to add it to soup instead of rice for these reasons. If you can’t find farro in your health food store, then you can substitute with brown rice or quinoa. This recipe can also be augmented by adding 1-inch chunks of turkey sausage. Yum! For my salad, I settled on a citrus medley with fennel and avocado (see the photo below.) Still considering the crumble idea though…I haven’t gotten that far yet!

adminThis is the perfect hearty fall dish and a great evening meal to be shared with friends. Though farro is not gluten-free, it is lower in gluten than today’s modern wheat varieties and it is packed with vitamins and fiber. It’s a great alternative to rice, quinoa, and barley and is commonly used in Mediterranean and Italian cooking.

Tuscan White Beans with Herbed Shrimp

I love this recipe and tend to make it often throughout the seasons. It’s low in fat and keeps you full. I always keep frozen shrimp in the freezer and my pantry is usually stocked with a variety of beans. I really enjoy Italian cooking but found it difficult to find a spice blend that was fragrant and flavorful enough for my taste, so I created the Healthy On You® Let the Good Thymes Roll Italian spice blend. This blend really does it for me with chunks of dried garlic, sage, basil, parsley, marjoram and red pepper and it’s salt-free to boot!
