Lately I have been making a ton of recipes using farro instead of the traditional quinoa, brown rice, or quinoa. I love the texture and nutty flavor and it's a great alternative when you get sick of the same grains over and over. For this simple and healthy meal, farro is used as the base to build a delicious Mediterranean bowl with artichoke hearts, roasted red peppers, cucumber, black olives, and feta cheese. It's delicious warm or cold and keeps well in the fridge to have as leftovers.
