1 tablespoon + 2 teaspoons olive oil, divided
1 cup onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 carrot, shredded
2 cups vegetable broth, low sodium
1 cup pearled faro
2 avocados, peeled, pitted & sliced

sea salt to taste
DIRECTIONS:

  1. Begin by placing a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add in a
    tablespoon of oil and then throw in your onion once the oil is hot. Cook
    for atleast five minutes, stirring frequently to keep it from burning.
  2. Add in your carrot and garlic. Allow it to cook for one minute more
    while you continue to stir.
  3. Add in your broth and faro. Let it boil and adjust your heat to high to
    help. Once it boils, lower it to medium-low and cover your saucepan.
    Let it simmer for twenty minutes. The faro should be al dente and
    plump.
  4. Pour the faro into a bowl and add in your avocado and zest. Drizzle with
    your remaining oil and add in your lemon wedges.
