I always look to cut sodium where I can, especially when making soups as they are often loaded with sodium. I tend to look for unsalted varieties of broth with 140 mg of sodium. These can be more expensive than lower sodium broths but are very affordable if purchased at BJs, Costco, or when on sale. I also purchase no salt added tomato and beans to cut the salt.
You can use 3-4 tablespoons of Italian seasoning if you have that on hand. It will save you from pulling out all those spice containers. Just look for one that does not have salt listed as an ingredient.
I used farro in this recipe but barley can work well too. If you wanted to make the recipe gluten free omit the grain or add pre-cooked wild rice.
