Dear FamBam! 

Wherever, whenever, eat as fresh as possible. Eat as close to whole, original form of your vegetables. Here is a good meal to attempt that with. This meal includes so many fresh flavors. We'd been eating some really tasty processed plant-based foods, and had to pull it back a bit. So here's how we did that today.

Prep Time Cook Time Total Time
10 minutes  25 minutes 35 minutes

*All times are approximate*



  1. Warm a large pot over medium/high heat.
  2. Rinse farro thoroughly, pour in the heated pot, and add organic vegetable broth. Stir to keep farro from sticking.
  3. Over medium/medium high heat, add oil and shiitake mushrooms to a large skillet. Sauté until mushrooms begin to brown.
  4. Add minced garlic cloves and cook until you smell a nice garlic aroma.
  5. Remove mushrooms and garlic from the skillet and store on a plate to the side.
  6. Add to the heated skillet, chopped fennel bulb and chopped asparagus. Cook for about 6 minutes or until vegetables begin to soften.
  7. Add Earth Balance soy free vegan butter, lemon zest, and fresh lemon juice to farro and mix well.
  8. On a large plate, or in a large bowl, spoon some farro. Top with the mushrooms and cooked greens (fennel bulb and farro). Top with chopped green onion, Violife vegan parmesan cheese, toasted sliced almonds, and dill and/or fennel fronds.
  9. Enjoy your meal!
