Hello also to this healthy and
Farro and Avocado meal!
This dish is soooo healthy,
but the thing is.....it's so tasty!!!
And filling! Who'd thunk?
nice vegan dish!
super healthy dish. Remember, it's vegan if you leave the queso fresco off. :)
A bit expensive.
Farro is becoming more mainstream and not so exotic anymore, so I think they can get that price lowered eventually.
I'm like, really dudes? $7.99? Get the price down on this please. I think this 1 lb. bag was maybe $7.99.So this is farro. It's a grain.
a local Iowa City salsa.
La Casa was a locally owned restaurant in Iowa City for years.
Mercy Sueppel, the owner, closed the restaurant but continues to make this fantastic salsa among other authentic Mexican products.
Now this is the salsa I used,
Anyway, we start this dish by boiling up the farro.
By the way, I had to google to see how long to cook farro because the package
doesn't tell you...I had to search a little bit to find out.
35 minutes is how long I cooked mine.
OHOHOH!!! I FORGOT TO MENTION,
I HALVED THIS RECIPE...it makes a ton!!!!
the mixture of onions, shallots,
I did use all three, which I think factored into the layered flavor of this dish.
Now drain those beans!
BTW, Could this picture be any dumber?
the onion, shallot, and garlic mixture in olive oil.
It smells heavenly!
Can you smell the aroma?
Now stir in that corn and salsa and cumin and salt and pepper....
so this is just waiting to be layered onto the farro.
Now layer the bean mixture on top of the farro...
Let's plate 'er up and see how it tastes....
little messy on a plate......
And the hearty farro but most importantly, the tasty bean, corn and onion mixture!
Okay, something was spicy about this dish, I wanted to keep eating it. Tim asked what was so spicy and I said I just didn't know.
Tim calls this dish "deceptive." It seems as if the flavor is going to be boring but it is deceptively delicious and super filling as a main dish.
Gotta tell ya, the cilantro really finishes off this dish,
don't forget the cilantro!

In the meantime, I think Ima try and be as carefree as a yittle 2 1/2 year old toddler boy sporting a dimple, joyous spirit, Well I hope someone tries out this recipe and follows back up and lets us know what they thought of it,
Okay guys, that's all I got for now :)
