Instructions

  1. Prepare asparagus: Bring a medium pan of water to a boil. Add asparagus stalks and boil 3 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water to stop cooking. Toss with lemon and olive oil.
  2. Prepare zucchini: Spiralize or thinly slice zucchini into ‘zoodles’.
  3. Toss farro or brown with 1/4 cup vegan green goddess dressing. Divide into four bowls.
  4. Arrange asparagus, zucchini, brocollini, greens and avocado on top of farro. Top with remaining green goddess dressing.
  5. Serve immediately or keep leftover portions in a sealed container for a great healthy lunch the next day!

Vegan Green Goddess Dressing Recipe:

  1. Combine all ingredients except olive oil in food processor and process until smooth. With food processor still running, pour in olive oil and process until combined.

Notes

*I add even more flavor to this recipe by using vegetable broth instead of water when making farro. I use a ratio of 3 cups broth to 1 cup uncooked farro.
