Sweet, tender cubes of butternut squash mingle with kale and nutty-tasting farro in this healthy and nurturing cold-weather soup from the Kalyn’s Kitchen blog. All you need is some prep time and a bit of patience.
What to buy: Farro is a whole-grain relative of wheat and spelt with a flavor reminiscent of hazelnuts and barley. Each grain stays firm and chewy—it’s hard to overcook, so there’s one less thing to worry about. You can find farro in most Italian groceries and well-stocked markets.
