This Italian-inspired soup will bowl you over with big-time flavor and plenty of nutritional highlights, including a payload of muscle-building protein and hunger-fighting fiber. It’s proof that an awesome soup need not be an all-day kitchen project.

The grain of choice, farro, is an ancient Egyptian grain that eventually made its way to Italy and became a popular pasta alternative. Although farro softens when cooked, it still retains a crunch. If farro isn’t available, this soup can be made with quinoa or rice.

onion, finely diced – 1

carrots, chopped – 3 medium

table salt – ½ tsp

stalk celery, finely diced – 2

garlic, minced – 2 clove

White wine – 1 cup

low-sodium chicken broth – 4 cup

chicken, rotisserie, chopped – 2 cup

lemon juice – 1 tbsp

Directions:

1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion, carrots, and salt; sauté for 6 minutes. Add the celery and garlic to pan, and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Place the tomato paste, Italian seasoning, and a pinch of black pepper in the pan, and heat for 30 seconds.

2. Add the wine to the pan, bring it to a boil, and let it cook for 3 minutes. Place the broth and farro in the pan. Return the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer covered until the farro is tender, about 20 minutes. Stir in the chicken and lemon juice, and heat through.
