Recipe:


Serves: 4


Preparation time: 20 minutes

Cooking time: 30 minutes

Total time: 50 minutes


 

Ingredients:


150g farro, uncooked

1 large bunch kale, stems removed and leaves chopped

1/2 lemon, juiced

2 tbsp olive oil

Salt and pepper, to taste

1 pomegranate, seeds removed

75g almonds, toasted and roughly chopped

Optional: 50g vegan feta cheese, crumbled


Dressing:

3 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp red wine vinegar

1/2 tsp Dijon mustard

1/2 tsp agave nectar or maple syrup

Salt and pepper, to taste


 

Method:


In a medium saucepan, cook the farro according to the package instructions. Once cooked, drain, and set aside to cool.


In a large mixing bowl, combine the chopped kale, lemon juice, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, salt, and pepper. Massage the kale with your hands for about 2 minutes to soften the leaves and make them more tender.


Add the cooled farro, pomegranate seeds, and chopped almonds to the bowl with the kale. Toss to combine.


In a small bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients until well combined. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to coat evenly.


If using, sprinkle the vegan feta cheese over the salad.



To serve:

Serve immediately, or refrigerate for an hour to allow the flavours to meld together.


 

Additional Tips:

Feel free to add in other fruits, vegetables, or protein sources to make this salad even more substantial.

Substitute farro with quinoa, bulgur, or barley if desired.


 

Allergy information / alternatives:

This recipe is naturally vegan and dairy-free.

For a nut-free option, replace the almonds with toasted pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds.
