Warm Broccoli and Farro Salad
September 23, 2014
This is a gloriously fresh mouthful of zing and goodness from a bountiful Winter/Spring crop. Our Kale and Broccoli are abundant at the moment and I am starting to look for more creative ways to enjoy them with our meals each night. I love that the broccoli plant just keeps on giving. After the main florets have been collected it continues to produce an amazing number of little side shoots.
I would be very happy eating this dish as a meal on it’s own. It is full of flavor, has various textural elements. It feels like a satisfying meal.
Low in gluten and high in fiber, Farro is a a nutty flavored grain with a lovely texture. I love that the kids make much less mess on the kitchen floor with farro than they do with quinoa. I enjoy quinoa but have had to stop serving as a side dish for my own sanity!
What is your favorite way to cook broccoli? I would love to hear in the comments below.
