Farro with Hearty Greens, Wild Mushrooms & Goat Cheese
Makes 4 to 6 servings
1/2 cup whole farro grains*
2 quarts water
1 Ü 2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups sliced wild mushrooms
4 cloves garlic, sliced paper thin
pinch red chili flakes
1 large bunch black kale (lacinato)** or other hearty green, torn
1/4 cup chicken broth
Dish D'Lish French Seasoning Salt or salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 to 3 ounces fresh goat cheese (chevre)
To cook the farro: In a medium saucepan, combine farro and water and bring to a boil. Then reduce heat to a simmer; cook the grain for about 30 minutes, or until very tender, but do not let it become mushy. Add more water if it gets low. Drain the cooked farro and set aside. (You can do this the day before; refrigerate cooked grain.)
Heat oil in a large sautÚ pan over high heat. SautÚ mushrooms until half cooked, about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Add garlic and chili flakes and sautÚ for a few seconds. Stir in kale. Add chicken broth and cooked farro, and cook, turning greens several times, until greens are wilted. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Squeeze lemon over dish to brighten flavor. Serve dolloped with goat cheese or grated sexy local cheese.
*Farro is available at Dish D'Lish Ballard and other gourmet stores.
** Also called dinosaur kale.
