Recipe

It's funny how tastes change over time and in this case, mine seem to be going in reverse.  As a kid, I thought sloppy joes were about the worst thing ever.  I also hated mashed potatoes, so go figure.  Now I absolutely love them both and immediately jump at the chance to eat either. 

A friend recently reached out who was trying to figure out a way to make vegetarian sloppy joes without using lentils.  Her son refused to eat lentils so she needed another version that was more kid friendly.  After doing some research, pearled farro seemed like a great alternative and he ended up loving it.  This stores great so don't be scared to make up a big batch and freeze it for later.
