This Farro Salad Is Far Out

Updated: Sep 26, 2020

On our quest to mix in new and nutritional meals that are both kid and family approved we recently tried some different farro recipes. For those of you who have never tried farro (like us) it is a healthy substitute to rice or pasta with it's chewy and satisfying texture, it is also very filling like a pasta. This ancient grain is packed with tons of nutritional value as it's high in protein, fiber, iron, zinc and magnesium. Eating healthy doesn't just play a key role in your physical health, it can also affect your emotional well-being, too.

After a little mixing and matching we came up with a fresh and flavorful Spiced Chickpea Farro Salad...with the added bonus that it is packed with 3 power ingredients that support major heart and brain benefits!

  1. Farro-Is exceptionally high in protein for a grain and supplies more than 10 different vitamins and minerals.

  2. Chickpeas-Are an excellent protein replacement when you want to skip the meat and they are loaded with vitamins and minerals like iron which plays an important role for boosting metabolism and producing energy.

  3. Tahini- Is a healthy fat that contains more protein than milk and most nuts. It is also rich source of B vitamins that boost energy and brain function.
