A few months ago I posted once of my favorite healthy recipes, Farro and Kale Salad, and today I bring you another one of my new favorites: Roasted Farro with Greens and Grilled Chicken. This dish is delicious, healthy, and a great combination of different flavors (some lemon, a little cheese, greens, grains and chicken).

I love farro for a few reasons:

  1. high fiber, high protein, and Farro’s gluten structure is less irritating and many non-celiac gluten intolerant people are able to tolerate it without difficulty (yes Tina this dish is for you).
  2. it is similar to brown rice, but has a richer flavor (and a little sweet too)
  3. it pairs really well with greens (and pretty much anything you mix it with)

This dish is packed with flavor and protein (hello healthy dish). Cooking with farro is easy (you can’t really screw it up whether you bake it, boil it, or fry it up). The best part? This recipe can easily be changed according to people’s tastes (Vegetarian? Just take out the chicken. Don’t like broccoli rabe? Then use collard greens or even spinach).
