Add a twist to your next get-together with Essensia Restaurant’s Creative Director Julie Frans fresh take on an ancient grain: farro. Grano farro has been used in Ancient Italian cuisines for thousands of years. Here, Chef Julie Frans kicks it up a notch with tangy preserved lemon and rich feta – making this the perfect side dish to a grilled steak or fish.
Rich in protein, farro has been used in Ancient Italian cuisines for thousands of years. The addition of roasted asparagus, potatoes and shallots along with fresh tomatoes and a lemon vinaigrette add flavor and versatility. Serve atop fresh greens or as a side to roasted meat.
