I look for interesting foods to continually please and provoke my palate. I found the ingredient in Trader Joes and was intrigued and now love it. 10 min Farro is great because it cut’s down on the long cooking time.
My love for Farro
I love farro. It’s hearty and wholesome, with an amazing chewy texture and nutty flavor. I enjoy it all year long, but it really becomes one of my kitchen staples in the fall. Its toasty flavor is delicious with all kinds of spices, vegetables and meats.
Here is a simple recipe that combines Farro with Arugula, ground sweet Italian Sausage and oyster mushrooms.
chef tip! even make this a vegetarian dish by leaving out the sausage meat and adding in spinach leaves to make it more filling.
How to Make it
Clean and cut the mushrooms into slices, peel and crush the garlic, remove the skin from the sausages. Heat the extra virgin olive oil in a frying pan or skillet, add the garlic peeled and slightly crushed and fry. Add the chopped sausage meat and brown a little then add the mushrooms previously cleaned and cut into strips and cook through. Add the fresh arugula during the last 5 to 10 minutes of cooking. Season with a pinch salt and Pepper. Add in the cooked farro and combine. Top with grated Parmesan and serve immediately.
