2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Cook the farro

In a medium sauce pot, combine the farro and 1½ cups [3 cups] lightly salted water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook until the grains are tender, 12 to 15 minutes. Drain, return to the pot, and set aside.
While the farro cooks, prepare the sausages.


Prep and brown the sausages

  • Pat the sausages dry with a paper towel; prick in a few places with a fork, if desired.
In another medium sauce pot over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon oil until hot but not smoking. Add the sausages and cook, turning once, until browned but not yet cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a cutting board to cool slightly, then cut on the diagonal into 1-inch-thick slices. Do not clean the pot.
While the sausages cook and cool, prepare the vegetables.


Prep the vegetables

  • Peel and coarsely chop enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
  • Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
  • Strip the kale leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.


Finish the dish

In the same pot used for the sausages, if dry, add 1 tablespoon oil. Warm over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Add the onion and garlic, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion softens, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the sausages, tomatoes, chicken broth, and 1 cup [2 cups] water and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sausages are cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes.
Stir in the farro and kale, adding the kale in batches if needed, and cook until the kale is just wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the sausage-farro mixture to individual bowls and serve.
