Farro is a whole grain similar to barley, with a nutty flavory and chewy consistency. Commonly grown in Italy, Farro is used in soups and salads since it is a healthy, filling food. Grill some veggies and add Farro for a colorful crowd pleasing main or side dish.
You will need:
- 3 carrots
- 1 yellow pepper
- 1 zucchini
- large handful of spinach
Coarsely chop the veggies and grill. Cook Farro according to directions, I boiled mine for about 15 minutes and strain.
The dressing is:
- 1 tablespoon of spicy brown mustard,
- 1 tablespoon of white wine vinaigrette
- 1 teaspoon of olive oil
Add Farro, grilled vegetables, and drizzle dressing (to taste) over warm sauté pan and stir. Cook over low heat for 3-5 minutes, then add spinach, gently fold several times, and enjoy!
