Roasted Broccoli and Farro SaladIngredients
3/4 c farro
1 head broccoli
3 T extra virgin olive oil
1/4 c crumbled feta cheese
2 scallions, white & green parts thinly sliced
1/4 t crushed red chili flakes
3 T coarsely chopped flat leaf parsley
1 T red wine vinegar
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bring water to a boil in at least a medium size saucepan. Add the farro and simmer for at least 20 minutes or until tender. Some types take a little longer. Drain and add to a large serving bowl. Meanwhile, cut the head of brocolli into florets. Peel the stem, slice it in half lengthwise, then crosswise in 1/4 inch slices. Toss the broccoli with 2 Tablespoons of the olice oil & spread it out in a roasting pan. Roast until starting to brown — about 20 minutes.
Add everything to the farro. Drizzle with the red wine vinegar and remaining olive oil. Season to taste with a little more vinegar or salt.
