Easy & Savory Roasted Veggie Farro Bowls for Meatless Monday

IMG_8593

This is a meatless meal prep recipe that I can’t believe I haven’t posted sooner, but midterms happened and life. . ., but this is one of those recipes that you’re bummed when your leftovers are gone. I love the chewiness and whole-grain nature of farro, and it’s quite easy to prepare. I had leftover rainbow carrots, haricot verts (think green bean’s skinnier cousin) and rainbow potatoes from slow cooker Italian sausage soup. Roasted in the oven with a little Salz und Pfeffer, rosemary, red pepper flakes and garlic was the right choice. Toss with farro, pistachios, dried cranberries and a quick “dressing” of lemon juice, apple cider vinegar and extra virgin olive oil. Then, you have the perfect Roasted Vegetable Farro Bowls with Cranberries and Pistachios. It’s tart and fresh with the vinaigrette, savory from the veggies and full of texture thanks to the farro, pistachios and dried cranberries.

Mustard Salmon with Roasted Veggies is such a great and quick mid-week dinner. This recipe will be added to the rotating arsenal. I saw a video for this on Facebook from Eating Well. It looked so easy and simple to make that I just had to try it. Since I don’t have a spice grinder and didn’t feel like buying more spices, I tried a marinade that our family friend, Maura, whisked together when we were in Florida. Just EVOO, Jack Daniel’s whole grain dijon mustard (soooo much flavor) and lemon juice. Asparagus, sweet potatoes and salmon are baked in the oven while you poach an egg. While you can skip the egg to make this a true “one pan” dinner, the yolk adds some saucy texture and more protein overall.

One Pan’s the Way to Go

Roasting veggies always seems to be winter thing, but what happens when you toss in some spring asparagus, fresh rosemary, lemon juice and lemon zest? A bright, easy dinner. One pan kind of easy. Also great when you’re in a rush and can just pop everything in the oven and let it run its course. Roasting the chicken keeps it oh-so-juicy and prevents it from drying out. Before you know it, you’ll be savoring that One Pan Lemon Rosemary Chicken & Veggies saying, “that was easy.”
