Roasted Vegetables and Farro


In my quest to find yummy meatless recipes, I discovered farro, a versatile whole grain that my family loves. Match that with roasted vegetables and it doesn’t last long on the table. This recipe was easy to make and enjoyed by everyone – but you can mix it up based on what you have or what looks best in the store or at the farmer’s market!
