Cook farro

Before starting, preheat the oven to 450˚F. Wash and dry all produce. Add farro, 1 tsp salt and 3 cups water (dbl both for 4 ppl) to a medium pot. Bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium. Cook uncovered until farro is tender, 16-18 min. Drain, then return farro to the same pot, off heat. Stir in broth concentrates. Cover to keep warm.

Roast squash

While farro cooks, add squash and 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Roast in the middle of the oven, stirring halfway through, until tender and golden-brown, 20-22 min.


While squash roasts, thinly slice green onions. Roughly chop spinach.

Roast bacon

Arrange bacon strips in a single layer on another parchment-lined baking sheet. Roast bacon in the top of the oven until crispy and cooked through, 8-12 min.**

Finish squash

When squash is tender, remove the baking sheet from the oven, then add spinach and half the green onions. Season with salt and pepper. Toss veggies together until spinach wilts slightly, 1 min.

Finish and serve

Divide farro between bowls. Top with veggies and cheese. Crumble bacon and sprinkle remaining green onions over top.
