Spicy Broccoli and Tomato with Farro
Combine Thai chiles, salt, sugar, garlic powder, and red pepper flakes in a mortar and pestle. Pound until a paste is formed.Advertisement
Place farro in a pot and cover with water; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat and add beef base. Cook farro, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 30 minutes. Drain.
Heat sesame oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic; cook until browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in broccoli; cook until color brightens, about 3 minutes. Mix in tomatoes, basil, and oregano. Add butter and the chile paste, stirring constantly until melted, about 3 minutes. Add lemon juice; stir briefly. Remove pan from heat and mix in the cooked farro.
Can easily be made into a vegetarian recipe by substituting vegetable base for the beef base.
The chili paste is spicy! Start with very little, and add more if necessary.
Lime juice may be substituted for the lemon juice.
