Yield: 2 servings


  • 3 cups vegetable stock
  • 1/2 cup farro (washed)
  • 1 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 3.5 ounces kale
  • 2 eggs


  1. Bring the vegetable stock to a boil and then add the farro. Cook until it reaches your desired tenderness (usually 15-45 minutes).
  2. Make the dressing by whisking together the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil and black pepper.
  3. Trim the stems off of the kale and then chop into thin ribbons.
  4. Prepare the eggs how you like them (see headnotes for suggestions and links to recipes).
  5. When the farro is done, drain it well in a colander and then add it to a bowl along with the kale and dressing. Toss to coat evenly and then divide between two bowls.
  6. Top with the eggs, and then season the eggs with salt and pepper.
