  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 425° Fahrenheit.

    Prepare the farro. Rinse farro under cool water. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add strained farro and reduce heat to medium-high and cook uncovered until soft, about 30 minutes. Strain.

  3. 3

  4. 4

    Add pesto and goat cheese to a medium bowl and stir to combine.

  5. 5

    To serve, divide farro equally between two bowls. Top farro with roasted veggies, arugula, and pesto goat cheese. Drizzle with balsamic glaze and squeeze over a lemon wedge, if desired. Best served fresh. Enjoy!

  6. 6

    Substitutions: Substitute arugula for another leafy green of your choice. Kale or spinach would work well. Swap suggested vegetables for other veggies of your choosing, such as eggplant, broccoli or asparagus. • Substitute balsamic glaze for a different salad dressing if you prefer. Omit pesto and serve goat cheese plain.
