I waited on my hunger this morning as I had my coffee and quiet time. And then the urge hit me. I wanted a farro bowl!
This recipe was adapted from the Hello Fresh Farro Bowl recipe that my son and I tried. This recipe has everything you could want in a meal: grains, sweet potatoes, onions, chili powder, pumpkin seeds, spinach and parmesan cheese to top it all off. It is SOOOOOOOOOO good and satisfying.
Do you ever wake up knowing exactly what you want to eat to kick-start your day?
1 cup Farro
1 sweet potato, cut into half inch pieces
1/2 small red onion, cut into half inch pieces
1 3/4 cups water
1 1/2 tsp chicken bouillon
1 cup frozen spinach
2 lemon wedges
1 tsp Swerve granular sugar
1 tsp olive oil
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup low sugar cranberries
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
chili powder to taste
salt and pepper to taste
Rinse the farro in a colander and place into a saucepan with the water and chicken bouillon, bring to boil and simmer until cooked (about 1/2 hour). While the farro is cooking, preheat the oven to 425 degrees and bake the sweet potatoes and onion on a cookie sheet with a drizzle of olive oil, the chili powder, salt and pepper for 15 minutes. Transfer the olive oil, sweet potatoes, onion and spinach into the cooked farro pot and combine. Plate and add parmesan and pumpkin seeds as garnish.
