Farro Beet Salad (Recipe)

Erin Gleeson ERIN GLEESON




Farro, beets & greens! Farro is a hearty, chewy grain kind of like wheatberries. Instead of throwing those beet greens out, chop them finely and add them in - they are kind of like kale. Dress lightly with olive oil, salt and pepper (or any dressing, really) and eat warm or at room temperature. This dish is great for a picnic!

Ingredients

  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 beets (greens, too!)
  • 1 red onion
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup farro
  • 3 cups water

Method

  1. Chop and sauté garlic, beets, onion with olive oil.
  2. Cook farro similar to rice (absorption method)
  3. Toss cooked farro with veggies, dress with olive oil, salt & pepper. Serve hot or cold.
