Author Notes

Farro verde is an early-harvest, toasted farro. It is harvested while green and roasted for extra flavor, and has a delicious smoky taste. This green farro makes a great grain bowl, topped with lots of fresh greens and in-season vegetables, all drizzled in a miso and blood orange dressing. —Sharon Hwang

What You'll Need
  • For the grain bowl
  • 1 cup Cooked Anson Mills farro verde
  • 1 bunch Gem lettuces
  • 1 bunch Dino kale
  • 1 handful Micro kale greens
  • 2 or 3 Golden beets, trimmed
  • a few French breakfast radishes
  • 2 eggs, fried
  • 1 piece Smoked trout
  • Blood orange and meyer lemon zest
  • Maldon salt
  • Dressing
  • 2 tablespoons Miso
  • 1 piece Ginger, about an inch, peeled and grated
  • 1/2 Blood orange, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons Extra virgin olive oil, or more
  1. Steam the beets, whole and unpeeled, for 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool then rub off the skins, cut into small wedges.
  2. While the farro is cooking, wash the lettuce and kale. Cut or shred the kale into smaller pieces, and toss with a light coating of olive oil. Cut the radishes into halves.
  3. Mix the miso with a small spoonful of hot water to form a smooth paste. Whisk together all the ingredients of the dressing. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.
  4. Place the cooked farro at the bottom of a bowl. Arrange on top a few leaves of gem lettuces, a good amount of kale, the steamed beets, and radishes. Slip in a fried egg and a few pieces of smoked trout. Garnish with micro greens and the citrus zests.
  5. Drizzle over a little dressing. Serve the farro bowls beautifully arranged, with the rest of the dressing on the side to be tossed in as you eat. Enjoy!
