Warm and filling, this roasted vegetable farro salad is perfect for chill fall evenings.



Preheat oven to 450º F.

Place farro in a stock pot with water, onions, carrots, salt and sachet. Cook until tender, about 45 minutes. Strain and remove vegetables and sachet.

While farro is cooking, toss butternut squash in olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place on a baking sheet with plenty of space between pieces. Repeat with celery and leeks. It's preferable to roast the vegetables separately. Roast squash until is just barely tender and has browned a little. The celery and leeks should be slightly crisp and slightly browned.

Mix roasted vegetables and farro. Reheat in the oven for 5 to 10 minutes to desired temperature and serve immediately.

Need Calorie Counts

Help~! Trying to eat healthy and eating your winter farro salad everyday -- my favorite, but without knowing the calories, it is impossible to calculate it into the calories available on my diet. Please post the calorie contents soon -- I don't want to go back to eating frozen entrees just because the calories are already figured-out!


RE: calorie counts


We're currently determining how best to analyze and present the nutritional data for our deli dishes and recipes.

In the meantime, we recommend using this online tool to calculate nutritional data. http://caloriecount.about.com/cc/recipe_analysis.php

calorie count

If you go to myfitnesspal.com and create and account (it's free) you can go to the "food" tab and hit "recipe's, then you simply plug in the exact amounts you are adding and then plug in the number of servings and it will calculate the calories. Additionally, if you use the online food journal, a number of foods (even the deli and specialty foods from certain grocers) are already calorie counted.

Hope that helps.
