Hi guys, just wondering if this soup would freeze well?

Thanks JD :-*

You've probably realised by now that I don't have much experience with lentils or freezing, so I just wanted to check :)

I made this tonight! I had to make a few adaptions. I had no red pepper so I just used a bit extra of the other vegies, and I couldn't find farro in Woolworths so I used pearl barley instead.

It is ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!! You know JD, I don't think any is going to make it to the freezer... :-))

Thanks for the recipe farallina. This was my first time cooking lentils and it was fantastic :D

If farro is spelt I only have wholemeal spelt. Is farro whole spelt?
Thx

Hi Droverjess
I guess there is a confusion about what exactly farro is
You can see the farro article in wikipedia.

I live in Italy so what farro is to me is what they sell here as farro
You can see the photo of the type of farro I used here

Oh, that looks a lot like pearl barley to me... Can someone clarify please? Pearl barley is what I had to substitute for the farro anyway, and it turned out really yum.

I had trouble finding farro because I have only ever seen it rolled for making porridge, so I wasn't sure what I was looking for.
