Healthy Recipe - Farro Vegetable Soup

Farro is an extremely nutritious grain. It's an excellent source of protein, fiber and nutrients like magnesium, zinc and some B vitamins. It's a much healthier alternative to white rice or other refined grains which makes it a great ingredient for a healthy soup! 

We followed this recipie from Jessica Gavin's blog, and made some minor adjustments. We love this Farro Soup beacuse it is hearty and leaves you satisfied. 

Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a large pot heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion and carrots stirring for about 5 minutes. Then add beans, okra, celery, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring a few times until the vegetables are softened, about 5 more minutes. Add canned tomatoes and stir to combine with the vegetables.
  • In a seperate pot bring vegetable broth, and water to a boil. Add the leek and cayenne pepper and let simmer for 10 minutes. Then combine broth with vegetables. 
  • Once boiling add the farro, reduce liquid to a simmer over medium-low heat and cover soup. Cook for 25 minutes, or until farro grains are tender.
