Prepare the Matzo Farfel

  1. In a pan over high heat, sauté onion in olive oil until slightly browned, about five minutes.

  2. Reduce heat to medium and add Manischewitz Matzo Farfel. Sauté the farfel until it is coated with oil and a bit toasty.

  3. Pour in Manischewitz Vegetable Broth and continue to cook, stirring occasionally until water is absorbed.

  4. After about five minutes the farfel will retain a bit of a bite, but you can cook it longer if you prefer a softer consistency.

  5. Transfer farfel to a large bowl and toss with feta, basil, tomatoes and lemon juice.

  6. Drizzle with additional olive oil and finish with fresh cracked black pepper just before serving.
