Yields6 Servings
 2 cups farro, rinsed
 3 tbsp avocado oil, divided
 2 cups carrots, cut into 1/4-inch slices
 4 garlic cloves, minced
 2 cups tomatoes, chopped
 1 cup dry white wine
 1 lemon, zested
 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice, divided
 1 tbsp dried Italian seasoning
 ½ tsp fine sea salt
 ¼ tsp ground black pepper
 6 cups cooking greens (kale, chard, arugula, spinach), tough stems removed and leaves chopped
 ¼ tsp crushed red pepper flakes
 ¼ cup fresh parsley, chopped
 ½ cup almonds, toasted and coarsely chopped
 ¼ cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
1

Place farro in a medium pot and add enough water to cover the farro by 1-2 inches. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until al dente, stirring occasionally, about 20-25 minutes. Drain and set aside.

2

Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add carrots and sauté, stirring often, until carrots are crisp-tender, about 10 minutes. Add garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add tomatoes and wine and continue cooking until almost all the liquid has evaporated and tomatoes are tender, about 5-10 minutes. Stir in lemon zest, 2 tablespoons of the lemon juice, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Remove from heat and stir in kale until just wilted.

3

To the cooked farro, add remaining 1 tablespoon oil, remaining 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, red pepper flakes, and parsley. Toss to combine. To serve, scoop farro mixture into bowls and top with vegetable mixture. Garnish with toasted almonds and Parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
