Chef notes

This soup not only offers many important vitamins and minerals, but it will also keep you full while helping you lose weight through improved digestive and metabolic systems. The high fiber content of the farro, kale and cannellini beans promotes healthy digestion, and the kale is also especially effective at aiding in detoxing and fat burning. This soup is as delicious as it is filling, and the slow cooker will also bring out the rich flavors this recipe has to offer.


  • 1 cup farro, rinsed
  • 8 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 cups chopped kale
  • 1 14.5-ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley leaves
  • 1/2 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1/2 large lemon, juiced
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • black pepper, to taste
  • 1 (15-ounce) can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed


Place all the ingredients except the cannellini beans in the slow cooker. Cook in the low setting for 8 to 10 hours.

Add the beans to the soup and cook another 30 minutes before serving.
