Farro & Broccoli Salad

farro
We bought our first bag of farro at Aldi grocery store!

The farro grain was introduced to our home on a cooking show.  The next day during our first trip to Aldi grocery store we found this magical grain!  The recipe below doesn’t seem like much, but you will fall in love with the texture. I loved how the grain absorbed the olive oil, lemon, and feta flavors.  ENJOY!

Ingredients

I cup of Farro & 3 cups of water with 2-3 chicken bouillon cubes
I cup of broccoli cut up small, you can saute with oil, salt, and peper to slightly soften (like a quick stir fry, so it’s soft but firm)
1/2 cups feta cheese crumbles
2 ounces of fresh Parmesan shaved, large pieces
1 Tablespoon of dehydrated onions (re-hydrate them in water)
lemon (about 2 Tbsp juice)
1/2 cups olive oil
tablespoon Dijon mustard
pepper
salt

Directions

  1. Cook farro according to package instructions.
  2. While the farro is cooking, saute broccoli in 1 Tbsp olive oil for 2-3 minutes, just to soften.
  3. Mix together vinaigrette: lemon juice, zest, ½ cup olive oil, mustard and salt and pepper, whisk
  4. Combine farro, broccoli, feta, onions and dressing and toss to combine.
  5. Salt & pepper to taste.
