I tried this cauliflower farro side at a cooking booth at my local farmer's market and headed home to reproduce it. It has since become one of my family's favorite side dishes. It's vegan too! For a crunchier taste, use the celery and carrot raw.

  • While the farro cooks, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook the cauliflower and onion in the hot oil until the cauliflower begins to soften and the onion starts to become clear, 7 to 10 minutes. Stir the carrot, celery, and salt into the cauliflower mixture; continue cooking and stirring until the cauliflower is completely tender.

  • Combine the farro and the cauliflower mixture in a large bowl; stir to mix evenly. Pour the lemon juice over the mixture and stir. Serve immediately.

This was a big hit at home. I added a little bit of Cumin and Garam Masala to give it a little more flavor. Read More

We loved this! I had to make a few changes due to what I had on-hand; used brown rice instead of farro chinese cabbage instead of celery and red wine vinegar instead of lemon (and added cumin and garlic powder). This is a versatile and forgiving recipe. Thanks vburrito! Read More

My family loved this! It's one I can easily make for everyone meat-eaters vegetarians and vegans all of which we have in our small family. It needs a bit more spice for us so next time I'll at least add vegetarian or vegan bouillon cubes to the water when I cook the farro. Read More
