    I made this in Spring and thought zucchini would be a nice touch instead of potatoes. I used a tablespoon of Greek seasoning instead of just oregano, it was full of flavour! I used Navy Beans instead of chickpeas because I thought the creamier bean would be nice with the chewier Farro. I'll try the chickpeas next time. I topped it with Pecorino Romano shavings and served it with a nice crusty bread.  -  28 May 2015  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    I made a few changes - added some zucchini and tofu chunks and used a tablespoon of tomato paste instead of tinned tomatoes (didn't have any). It turned out pretty well, nice flavours and mix of texture.  -  10 Jan 2015  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Very good with lentils, too!  -  14 Feb 2014  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
