Always choose your carbohydrates carefully to keep your energy levels steady. Here, we’ve chosen whole-grain farro as the base of our scrumptious pilaf – it contains fiber as well as iron, a mineral that’s essential for your body to make hemoglobin, which delivers oxygen to your body’s cells.
The farro for this deliciously crispy crab cake-like dish is purposely a little overcooked and sticky to help the cakes hold their shape during cooking. An avocado aioli-style sauce and tomatoes on top add creaminess, brightness .
This herbed farro is reminiscent of Middle Eastern tabbouleh – try stirring in some diced tomato and cucumber if you have them on hand.
