  • Summary

    Mustard greens have a sharp, radishy bite that's delicious in a bean soup, but, if you like, you can substitute kale or collards. Smaller white beans such as cannellini can be used in place of giant white beans.

    Ingredients

    • 1 pound dried giant white beans, such as gigante, Corona, or lima
    • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
    • 1 onion, finely chopped (1 1/4 cups)
    • 2 medium carrots, cut into 1/4-inch dice (1 cup)
    • 4 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 1/2 pounds mustard greens, washed well and stems removed, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick strips
    • 5 thyme sprigs
    • 5 flat-leaf parsley sprigs
    • 2 bay leaves
    • 1 Parmesan cheese rind (about 1 by 4 inches; optional), plus freshly grated Parmesan cheese, for sprinkling
    • 2 quarts water
    • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
    • 1 cup farro
