    I thought this was very tasty - I soaked the beans for an hour and a half beforehand, and they only took a little over an hour to cook.

    I really like this dish. Perfect thing to make on a cold, snowy day. The farro works well with the beans, giving it a nice "chew". I did add kale, but it would also be delish without it.

    Really enjoyed this recipe. I used wheatberries instead of the farro and it worked well.

    p. 8 Yuk, I really disliked this, and I never say that. This sounded like the perfect dish to make-ahead for a weeknight meat-free meal. I had high expectations for this stew that’s chock-full of ingredients we love. I found the cooking liquid to be fairly bland, even with the addition of the Parmesan rind. Once I seasoned with salt and Aleppo pepper it was still flat. MC says if the stew tastes a bit flat swirl in some lemon juice at the end to perk up the flavors. Sorry MC, even doing this in conjunction w topping w parmesan being sure not to skimp on the oil, salt and red Aleppo pepper when serving couldn’t save this bor-ring dish for me. I’d even added the kale suggested but to no avail. I served this over whole wheat Israeli couscous. On top of being uber-bland, I really disliked the texture of this dish, which reminded me of pabulum or some sort of baby food. Pretty disappointing. It did look pretty though!
