    Ingredients (Makes 4 Servings)

    8 oz farro (spelt)

    4 cups chicken or vegetable stock

    1 chopped shallots

    1 diced carrots

    1 diced celery

    4 diced asparagus

    1 diced zucchini

    4 bottom mushrooms

    ½ cup green peas

    1 diced tomatoes

    4 basil leaves

    2 tbsp goat cheese

    2 tbsp Parmesan cheese

    4 tbsp olive oil

    Procedure

    1.      In a saucepan, combine 1 tablespoon of olive oil and the farro, then gradually add the hot vegetables stock and cook for about 40 minutes.

    2.      Meantime, in a sauté pan, sauté the vegetables with olive oil, salt and pepper.

    3.      After about 40 minutes the farro should be tender but still al dente and all the liquid should be absorbed by the farro.
