This was an amazing side dish to my grilled pesto chicken ( on this blog too! ) – So healthy and yet so delicious!!


3/4 cup pearled farro


3 to 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided

1 bundle asparagus, tough ends trimmed

2 shallots, chopped

2 cloves garlic, chopped

1 lemon

3 to 4 tablespoons tarragon or parsley, chopped



Rinse farro and bring 6-7 cups of water to a boil. Salt water, add farro and cook to tender, 20-25 minutes, drain.

Thinly slice asparagus. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil, 2 turns of the pan and lightly brown 3-5 minutes. Add shallots and garlic, and toss 2-3 minutes more. Add farro to the pan and combine, remove from heat and dress with lemon juice, herbs and more olive oil to coat, about 2 tablespoons. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
