One Pot Farro Tuscan Veggie Soup - Meatless Monday | Healthy Eats by Jennie

This is a great recipe for Meatless Monday! One pot recipes are perfect for Mondays (less dishes to clean, and no one wants a lot of dishes to do on a Monday)! Also, it is super healthy since it is loaded with several power foods which is perfect for detoxing after a weekend filled with fun drinks and guilty foods. Another bonus for a Meatless Monday meal is that it makes a lot so then you can have leftovers for some healthy lunches during the week.

  • Parmesan cheese (for topping, optional)

Directions:

  1. Over medium-high heat in Dutch oven or pot, with the olive oil, sauté onions, carrots, celery, and red pepper for 7 minutes.
  2. Turn down heat to medium, add garlic, and sauté for 1 minute more.
  3. Add broth, salt, crushed red peppers, oregano, black pepper, basil, parsley, farro, and parmesan rind (if including); stir, cover with lid and cook for 25 minutes.

People often throw away the rind of the parmesan cheese. Don’t! Keep it, it tastes great in soups! Parmesan rinds keeps for a long time in the fridge, but you can also freeze them.
