Turkey Farro Soup
I am been experimenting with alternate grains. I like to try new food, especially when that food is more nutrient dense. So I was excited to try Farro in this soup.
2 cups cooked turkey, broken into bite sized pieces
½ yellow onion chopped
2 tablespoons avocado oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
½ teaspoon minced ginger
2 cups frozen mixed vegetables
½ cup Farro
oil to a stockpot. Heat until hot and then add the onion, ginger and garlic.
Cook until the onions are soft. Add the
turkey broth and turkey. Bring to a boil. Add the mixed vegetables. Bring to a simmer.
Bring four cups of water to a boil. Add the Farro. Cook until done. This can vary depending on the type of Farro used. Test by taking a fork and lifting out a few grains. It should be firm, like brown rice.
