Breakfast Grain Bowls
Unlike white rice, farro is a fiber and protein packed whole grain making it a healthy grain choice. It is rich in nutrients, mineral and antioxidants.
Breakfast Grain Bowl
This recipe is great for making ahead, keep the parts seperate in the fridge and build the bowl in the morning!
1 1/2 cups of cooked farro
1 package of Duncan Farms Sausage Patties, cooked and roughly chopped.
2 Red Bell Peppers (for roasting)
4 green onions, thinly sliced
6, soft cooked Duncan Farm eggs
Optional: Your favorite hot sauce for dressing
Farro: Know what kind of farro you have purchased. Grocery stores usually sell 3 types of farro all with different cooking times, anywhere from 15-40 minutes. If you aren't sure which kind you have, start tasting for doneness at 15 minutes. It should be the texture of cooked rice or quinoa ( tender, but with an al dente bite is best)
In a tight mesh strainer/sieve, rinse 1 cup of uncooked farro with cold water. Fill a medium pot half full of water and bring to a boil. Add the farro, reduce the heat and simmer until the farro is tender and chewy. (15-20 minutes for pearled farro, 20-30 minutes for semi-pearled, and 40 minutes for whole).
Drain, then spread on a large plate or sheet pan and dry for 20 minutes, this keeps it from overcooking.
Soft Boiled Eggs
Boil a medium pot of water over high heat. Reduce heat to medium to maintain a gentle boil.
Add eggs with a slotted spoon, and let them simmer for 7 minutes.
While eggs are boiling prepare a bowl of ice water. After the eggs have cooked for 7 minutes, put them into the ice water and let them chill for at least 3 minutes. Peel eggs before using them.
Preheat oven to 350, and place Duncan Farms sausage patties on a baking sheet. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165 ( they can be cooked in a skillet or frying pan, but we like how easy the oven bake is). Roughly chop cooked sausage.
Roasted Red Peppers
Slice red peppers in half and remove seeds. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place peppers cut side down. Preheat oven to 475, and bake peppers for 40 minutes ( or until soft and lightly charred). Once cooled, peel off the skin, roughly chop the peppers and drizzle olive oil over them.
Assemble the Bowl
Place 1/2 cup of farro into a bowl, top with rough chopped sausages, 2 tablespoons of roasted red peppers, 2 tablsepoons of green onions and one egg sliced in half. Drizzle your favorite hot sauce over top for a kick of heat.
