    Can anyone tell me how to adjust the ingredients to make this recipe for 50 people? I know that doubling or tripling all the ingredients is not always the way to go to make a large batch. Any info is most appreciated. Thank you, Mary Lou

    Delicious, we are always looking for ways to incorporate whole grains and beans into our diet. Great for those cold winter nights.

    Wow! This has become one of my new favorite recipes of all time. I noticed a previous contributor said that it was extremely bland but take note: the recipe calls for 6 cups of water rather than stock or broth. I don't know if this was a misprint, but I used a combination of beef and chicken broth and it was sublime! (You could also substitute vegetable broth if you are aiming for vegetarian.) This is a hearty, thick soup that's filling and delicious, especially with the pesto

    This recipe was very bland. Even after adding the pesto there was not much taste. I was very disappointed.
