warm farro salad // sweet potato + chickpeas

Farro Salad // Sweet Potato + Chickpeas
I've had this recipe in my Que and on my mind since last winter, it isn't until now that I actually got around to making it. I'm kinda sad I didn't make it sooner, It really was worth the wait.

Farro is one of those grains that I don't use often enough. Every time I use farro in a recipe I think to myself this is so good why don't I cook with farro more often...then it gets pushed back into the dark corner of the pantry forgotten until another year has passed.


Farro Salad // Sweet Potato + Chickpeas
I think we have had this discussion before, but what really constitutes as a salad? This is a warm Salad of sorts, but could definitely be served at room temp. It would even be great served over a bed of fresh greens such as arugula or baby spinach.

Farro Salad // Sweet Potato + Chickpeas
I restocked my Farro stash with an Organic NON GMO Farro from NOW Foods, it also has the added bonus of being grown in the USA / / double win!

Farro Salad // Sweet Potato + Chickpeas
The dressing is super simple // garlic, lime, hot pepper, coconut oil and sea salt.

Chickpeas add additional protein, sunflower seeds crunch and the golden berries (also known as Inca Berries) add a welcome tartness to the overall dish.

Farro Salad // Sweet Potato + Chickpeas
Warm Farro Salad // Sweet Potato + Chickpeas
serves 4-6

you will need:
1 cup dry farro + 2 1/4 cups water
 1 tbsp coconut oil  
1 medium sweet potato peeled + shredded
1 can chickpeas- drained (keep the brine as an egg replacer!)
1/4 cup golden berries or golden raisins  
1/4 cup salted roasted sunflower seeds
2 large handfuls baby kale or baby spinach
salt to taste

for the dressing
1 tsp dried chili flake
juice of 1 fresh lime
1 clove of garlic // minced
salt to taste
1 tbsp Coconut Oil  melted

assembly:
Cook the farro according to package instructions // my ratio was 1 cup dry farro + 2 1/4 cups of water cooked for 20 minutes.

While farro is cooking. Shred your sweet potato and heat coconut oil over medium high heat in a large skillet. Saute sweet potato until sweet potato begins to soften and crisp up a bit. Add chickpeas and cook about 2 additional minutes continuously stirring to prevent the sweet potato from sticking to the pan.

Reduce the heat to medium / low, add cooked farro, golden berries and sunflower seeds, stir until incorporated into the sweet potatoes and chickpeas.

Add the greens and salt tossing with the farro to - greens should begin to slightly wilt.

Turn off heat.

In a small bowl combine all dressing ingredients and mix. Drizzle dressing over the Farro Salad and toss / mix salad to evenly distribute dressing.

Transfer to a serving platter or serve straight from the pan.

Best served warm or at room temp.

Will keep up to a week. When reheating, add a small amount of water to the pan or dish.

Enjoy!

  5. Farro is one of my favorite grains. I love its size and chewiness. Tiny grains/seeds like quinoa or amaranth have a texture I don't like, but I'm all about big chewy grains.

  6. I haven't tried farro but I would love to! Looks delicious.
