Zuppa di Farro e Fagioli (Tuscan Bean Soup with Farro)
Italian Soups Vegan Vegetarian White Beans

Sauerkraut and White Bean Soup
Gluten-Free Omnivore soups Soups & Stews Vegan Vegetarian White Beans
It’s not a bean soup or a sauerkraut soup. It’s its own thing and I can’t wait to make this again. There are many versions of this and if you aren’t using good heirloom beans, like our Royal Coronas, I would add some sausages or a ham hock. I’m not trying to be funny, but the flavor just won’t be there unless you use good heirloom beans. Similarly, if you don’t have homemade sauerkraut on hand, use a trusted brand.
