While ordering brunch at one of the popular San Diego spots my sister in law happened to notice a peculiar but rather enticing looking plate on the table next to us. Last minute order changes for me are almost always a bad idea but for my sister in law, it’s a different story. Her farro salad order became the highlight of the day!
- In a pan heat oil, add green beans, red onions, salt and pepper. Sautee for a few minutes till beans are cooked.
- Drain water and rinse farro.
- In a small pot boil 2.5 cups water with a little salt and bring farro to a boil until soft. Strain water from farro and place in a bowl.
- Mix in cooked veggies.
- Serve at room temperature, add scallions for garnish. For a slightly different taste add 1 tabelspoon balsamic vinegar and mix.
If you're not able to soak the farro for 8 hours then soak in boiling water for 30 minutes to an hour instead. Also, substitute or add any crispy veggies, cherry tomatoes are a great addition.
