During this time of year, we crave dinners that are hearty, rustic, and soul-warming. This soup checks all of those boxes. It has a tomatoey broth as its base that gets filled up with Italian chicken sausage, bites of carrot, aromatic herbs, and farro (that’s an ancient grain with a wholesome, nutty flavor). And because no soup is complete without some bread for dunking, we’re also throwing in some ciabatta toasts spread with herb butter.

Heat a large drizzle of olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add sausage, breaking it up. Cook until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add another large drizzle of olive oil, then toss in carrots, onion, and a big pinch of salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until just softened, about 5 minutes.

Stir remaining Italian seasoning into pot. Cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in tomatoes and tomato paste. Cook, stirring, until well combined, about 1 minute. Stir in farro, stock concentrates, a few big pinches of salt, and 5½ cups warm water. Cover and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium low. Simmer 10 minutes, then uncover pot and simmer until farro is tender, about 5 minutes more.
