Power Soup

4 Jan

There is a supplement in the Telegram and Gazette that I love.

It is called Relish.

It has some of the best recipes.

Of course, I changed this one a little bit.

Since I have a terrible cold I wanted something healthy.

This soup has Vitamin C, K, calcium, beta carotene, protein and fiber.

It took 40 minutes to make.

One tablespoon olive oil

One chopped onion

3 cloves minced garlic

One cup Farro

8 cups chicken broth

3 cups diced butternut squash

one 14 ounce can of rotelle

one 14 ounce can of diced tomatoes with the juice.

one 4 inch piece of Parmigiano cheese cut into very small cubes

one teaspoon dried thyme

four chicken bouillon cubes

2 cups of baby kale

2 cups baby spinach

Grated cheese on top

Heat the oil

Add the onion and garlic

Cook till soft.

Add the Farro and stir for one minute till everything is coated with the oil.

Add the broth, tomatoes. squash, cheese, thyme and bouillon cubes.

Bring to a boil and then simmer till the farro is cooked.

This takes about 30 minutes.

Add the kale and spinach

Add 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Cook for another two minutes.

Serve with cheese on the top.

You can add beans, carrots, celery or whatever else you like.

This tastes like a vegetable soup  but with the chewy farro.
