Preparation Time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:
1 small chopped onion
1 -2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil plus more for serving
2 cups Matzo Farfel
1 cup All Natural Vegetable Broth
1/4 pound of crumbled Tnuva feta

1. In a pan over high heat sauté onion in olive oil until slightly browned, about 5 minutes.
2. Reduce heat to medium and add matzo farfel.
3. Sauté the farfel until it is coated with oil and a bit toasty.
4. Pour in broth and continue to cook, stirring occasionally until water is absorbed.
5. After about 5 minutes the farfel will retain a bit of a bite, but you can cook it longer if you prefer a softer consistency.
6. Transfer farfel to a large bowl and toss with feta, basil, tomatoes and the lemon juice squeezed from the fresh lemon.
7. Drizzle with additional olive oil and finish with fresh cracked black pepper just before serving.
