This recipe of Saint Nicola is the one used by the priest of Monteleone di Spoleto, the eve of the day of Saint Nicola, the 5th of December. It is called the "lean recipe" because it's only dressed with olive oil. It is perfect for any vegetarian diet and gives to the body a great amount of natural elements.

DIRECTIONS

Mince onions and celery and fry them in a pan with a bit of olive oil and some peeled tomatoes. Add water and when it starts to boil add the Spelt Farro di Monteleone. Cook for 1 hour mixing often. When cooked, you can add some chilli or pecorino cheese.
