Kale & Farro Salad

I promised this recipe last week, but finally got around to putting it all together! I got the inspiration for this filling salad from my July Foodzie box. We got a small box of this Bluebird Grain Farms Whole Grain Farro and wow it was so delicious. I didn’t really know a lot about farro before, so I did my research. It cooks similarly to brown rice, but has a nutty, richer taste with a little sweetness and it has a high nutritional value (16% protein). I honestly prefer it to brown rice because it has so much more flavor.

We ate it as a side dish with fish for dinner and the next day I reheated it and ate it as my lunch. It’s super filling and really rich with flavor. Yum!

Update: I recently remade this dish, but added even more delicious veggies! I roasted two heads of broccoli, 12 stalks of asparagus and a whole head of kale. I also added some grilled chicken making this a full meal!
