Do you know what farro is? Me neither. It's healthy, that's why I don't know what it is. What's your excuse? I recently discovered it in my July Foodzie Box. Thought it was bird food (the photo of the blue jay on the bag added to my confusion) until I noticed they also included a recipe for a Kale and Farro Salad. Oh! It's for humans!
Well, I made it last night and completely undercooked the farro, however, it was still mighty tasty. I could have eaten the crispy, salty kale all on its own. Something about pairing the bitter green with soy sauce REALLY works.
Here's my modified recipe...
Kale and Farro Salad
2 T extra virgin olive oil
1 T tamari (or soy sauce)
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1 bunch of kale, ribs and stems removed, chopped
1 cup cooked farro
Preheat the oven to 350. In a large bowl, whisk together the olive oil, tamari and sesame oil. Add the chopped kale and mix with your hands until evenly coated. Place kale on a baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes. Add to your cooked farro and toss. Serve warm.
Here's the link I followed to cook my farro. It needs MORE than 30 minutes, if you ask me, which you did.
