Because apparently we are a sick house and I only want to eat broth-based things ever.
Our week of healing is going well, thanks to incredible amounts of support from our friends and family and narcotics for Jay. I, on the other hand, have gotten some kind of cold-on-top-of-a-cold and can’t stop craving salty brothy things to make my throat feel better and my nose unclog slightly. Doing a surgery recovery with a toddler while sick and doing regular work has been a struggle; we feel like we.just.can’t.quite. catch up on sleep and housework, but we’re getting there, one day at a time.
The good news is that the Porta Potty was picked up from our FRONT YARD where it has been for nearly 6 months, so small victories, you know?
So this soup is part three in the “let’s eat green stuff” accidental spring series – we had a salad, then pasta, and now this soup! I adore farro for the texture, it’s so chewy and holds up well in soups; I buy the quick cooking kind at Trader Joe’s. With that, this entire soup comes together in less than half an hour, and fresh herbs and lemon spritzes all over the place wake up the entire bowl for the warm weather. As a bonus, this recipe is vegan if you use veggie stock and dairy free + probably gluten free and paleo and Whole30 friendly if you check labels carefully, which I don’t.
