  • 1 cup uncooked farro
  • 4 cups halved brussels sprouts
  • 6 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 cups cooked chickpeas
  • 1 cup grated carrot
  • 1 batch miso tahini sauce


  1. Cook the farro according to package instructions.
  2. Wash and chop the broccoli and prepare the brussels sprouts but cutting the stems off and chopping each in half. 
  3. Add the halved brussel sprouts to a skillet with about 1/3 cup water. Cover and steam over high heat for 6-7 minutes. Check the pan, if completely dry, add a few more splashes of water and continue cooking uncovered so they start to brown a little. This whole process should take 10 minutes. While the brussels sprouts are steaming, add the chopped broccoli to a steaming basket and steam for 5-6 minutes until tender but still a little crisp. They should be bright green when cooked.
  4. If using canned chickpeas, drain and rinse. Peel and grate the carrot and mix up the miso tahini dressing according to this recipe.
  5. Once the farro is cooked, add 1/2 cup each to 4 bowls or containers. Divide the rest of the ingredients between the 4 bowls. Drizzle with tahini sauce and enjoy.
