food: farro & kale salad

last week there was a fun article on buzz feed that had a bunch of pumpkin recipes and they all sounded soooooo yummy…
so of course, i took it upon myself to bastardize one of them.

this recipe below started as a lentil & pumpkin salad with feta & arugula.
and i turned it into a farro & sweet potato salad with blue cheese & kale.  because those all seemed like logical substitutions.

I started with a bag of trader joe’s 10 minute farro.  essentially its been par-cooked, so it doesn’t take an hour of boiling before its edible.
so i cooked the farro, microwaved 2 sweet potatoes and chopped a couple kale leaves, some asparagus and flat leaf parsley.

once the sweet potatoes & farro were cooled off (aka – not steaming hot, but still warm) i combined them in a big bowl with the veggies, added the juice of 1 lemon, about 1/4 – 1/2 cup of olive oil, salt & pepper and chili flakes.
then i tossed in some delicious crumbled blue cheese and topped with chopped avocado.

easy peasy!
