Farro Chickpea Salad

Raw Organic Healthy Buddha Bowl with Farro Spinach Edamame and Cucumber pinit

This is a great “no meat” lunch recipe. In case you don’t know, farro is a protein grain originating in Italy. Which is why it makes the perfect base when you are trying to eat a lighter lunch. I don’t know about you, but sometimes a lunch with meat makes me feel heavy, especially in the hot weather. This is the perfect summertime recipe!



  1. Cook farro, boiling water first and then adding farro. Once Farro is soft (I like mine al dente), drain excess water and refrigerate. Once farro is sufficiently cool, mix in a big bowl with chickpeas, feta, and sliced olives. Then add lemon and lime juice to taste. You can optionally add a hot sauce, like a light dusting of habanero, to spice it up. Season with salt and pepper. Serve on a bed of spinach leaves for extra carbs/protein/fiber. You can also add a little extra protein, like tuna.
