Farro Salad with Roasted Vegetables

Blogging Marathon# 38: Week 4/ Day 1
Theme: Revisiting Recipes
Dish: Farro Salad with Roasted Vegetables
We are starting the final week of blogging marathon# 38 today and I chose a relatively simple theme. I am going to be revisiting some of my old posts and updating them with new pictures. 
Farro Salad with Roasted Vegetables
Today I am updating my hearty and healthy Farro salad with roasted vegetables post. I don't know what I was thinking when I was taking those pictures, I used my used pizza stone with stains on them which wasn't the best of backgrounds to use. So here is a simple salad with some updated pictures. 
Farro Salad with Roasted Vegetables

Farro Salad with Roasted Vegetables
Ingredients: Makes 1 big serving or 2 smaller servings
Farro - ½cup
Red Onion - 1 small, diced
Red Pepper - 1 medium, chopped
Japanese Eggplant - 1 medium, cut on the bias
Zucchini - 1 small, cut on the bias
Mushrooms - 1 cup, quartered if big or halved if small
Herbe de Provence - 1tsp
Garlic Olive Oil  - 1tsp
Balsamic Vinegar - 2tsp (I used white balsamic as I was out of regular balsamic)
Mint - 2tbsp, finely chopped
Fontina Cheese - 1 oz. diced (optional)
Salt and Pepper - to taste

  • Cook Farro: I soaked farro overnight, but soaking is not required. Combine farro with 2 cups of water, bring to a boil and, lower the heat and simmer for 20-25 minutes or until all the water is absorbed and farro is tender. Even after completely cooked farro has considerable bite, it will not be too soft or mushy.
  • Roasting Vegetables: Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and add all the chopped veggies. Drizzle 2tbsp olive oil, herbe de provence, salt and pepper. Mix everything well and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the veggies start to caramelize around the edges. 
  • Assemble: Combine, roasted veggies, garlic oil, balsamic vinegar, chopped mint, cheese, salt and pepper. Mix well and serve warm or at room temperature or chilled.
