Halloumi with farro.jpg

Have you tried out farro?

It is a type of wheat that has a very similar texture and taste to brown rice. Farro is not gluten free Inbut is signficantly lower in gluten than other wheat grains.

Ingredients needed for this (this recipe serves 2:)

  • Halloumi (About 125g or half a packet)

  • Farro (about 130g)

  • Half a cucumber

  • Sundried tomato (30g)

  • 2 Spring onions

  • 1 large tablespoon of tomato puree

  • A teaspoon of Chilli flakes

  • 1 Lemon

  • Mixed seeds - 2 tablespoons

  • A bunch of parsley

  • A bunch of Mint

  • Olive oil

Method:

  • Fill a medium saucepan with salted water, place over a high heat and bring to a boil.

  • Once water comes to the boil, add the farro and cook according to the instructions.

  • In the meantime prep the dressing for the farro.

  • Mix together the zest & juice of the lemon, the tomato puree, the olive oil and the chilli flakes. 

  • Season with salt & pepper. 

  • Dice the cucumber, sun dried tomatoes & spring onions

  • Chop the parsley and mint leaves - you can disregard the stalks

  • When the farro is nearly ready start heating up a frying pan

  • Put a small amount of oil on the pan and fry the halloumi for a couple of minutes on both sides to give it a nice golden colour

  • Once farro is ready strain using a colander and add the cucumber, sundried tomatoes, mixed seeds and the dressing.

  • Mix well together

  • At the last minute add the parsley, mint & spring onions

  • Serve halloumi on bed of the farro salad

  • Add seeds just before serving

Its that easy…if you don’t have farro don’t be afraid to try this out with a different grain or add different veggies or herbs.
