    I actually mixed this recipe with the farro with wild mushrooms recipe on this site. I mainly followed that one due to the mushrooms and this recipe adding the greens, I used spinach, and feta at the end. I really love mushrooms and I love spinach, so I figured why not make this more hearty and use it as the main dish. I put a vegetable beside it. Easy recipe even with combining two!  -  04 Jan 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I substituted barley and it was delicious! So simple and so tasty.  -  17 Nov 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Good, quick, healthy. I added a can of drained canneloni beans and used as a main dish. A little bland. The next time I make it will add sauteed onions and try some herbs.  -  14 Dec 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
