Have a safe day!! Thank you, CM FARRO BREAKFAST BOWL: PICTURE BY PHOTO: ALISON MIKSCH http://www.cookinglight.com/recipes/farro-breakfast-bowl Total Time 30 Mins Yield Serves 2 This meal in a bowl takes its morning cue from soft-boiled eggs and a dollop of yogurt, and then goes savory with toasty cumin-scented farro and a creamy avocado. It’s also perfectly portioned for two. Boil the farro like pasta—in plenty of water that you’ll drain off—to cut the cook time in half. Toasting the farro in a little oil is a great way to revive any leftover cooked whole grains. Whole-milk Greek yogurt has a cool, luxurious mouthfeel that brings all the elements together. It also has more protein than reduced- or nonfat yogurt. Ingredients * 1/2 cup uncooked farro 2 large eggs (refrigerator-cold) 2 teaspoons olive oil 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided 1 medium ripe avocado, halved and pitted 1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper 3 tablespoons whole-milk plain Greek yogurt 2 lemon wedges How to Make It Step 1
Bring a large saucepan filled water to a boil. Add farro; reduce heat to medium and simmer 20 minutes or until slightly chewy. Drain. Step 2
Bring a small saucepan of water to a boil. Add cold eggs; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 6 minutes. Place eggs in a bowl of ice water; let stand 6 minutes or until completely cool. Drain and peel. Step 3
Heat oil in a small skillet over medium. Add cumin; cook 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Add farro and 1/4 teaspoon salt; cook 2 minutes or until lightly toasted. Place 2/3 cup farro mixture in each bowl. Carefully halve one egg over each bowl. Add one avocado half to each bowl. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper evenly over top. Top each with 1 1/2 tablespoons yogurt. Squeeze 1 lemon wedge over each bowl. ENJOY!!
