- 1 cup pearled farro
- 2 cups vegetable broth
- 1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

In a medium saucepan, combine farro and vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Cover with a lid and reduce the heat to low and simmer. Cook for 20 minutes or until the farro is tender. Drain the broth from the farro and return the farro to the pan.
