One Pan Farro with Tomatoes

This is a recipe that was recently posted by Deb Perelman of Smitten Kitchen who I am a huge fan of.  I wanted to try it immediately and thought of how good Sicilian Seasoning would work in this recipe.  I knew that I had all of the ingredients at home so I planned to make it that night but of course forgot that I had just used the last of my Sicilian.  I considered driving back to the office to grab some but instead realized that I have a couple of blends that would work just as well with this simple recipe.  I pulled out my Mediterranean, Herbes de Provence, Pizza and Tuscan Seasoning and was torn because they would all work great.  I decided to go with Tuscan and it was absolutely delicious.  This is a perfect healthy and quick recipe that I will certainly be making again and trying with a lot of my different seasoning blends. For this recipe you will need:

  • 1 cup semi-pearled or whole farro
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 12 ounces grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 tablespoons Victoria Taylor's Tuscan Seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Sea salt to taste
  • Basil, Thinly sliced
  •  parmesan cheese, grated

The most brilliant thing about this recipe (besides the fact that it tastes like it is bad for you while being good for you) is that it is truly a one pan meal.  You start by adding the farro and water to a medium saucepan.  Let the farro soak while you slice the tomatoes, onion and garlic adding them directly to the pan when done.  Add the Tuscan Seasoning (can substitute Sicilian, Mediterranean, Herbes de Provence, Pizza or No Salt Lemon Pepper) salt and olive oil to the pan.  Bring the pot to a boil then reduce to a simmer.  Set a timer for 30 minutes stirring occasionally. Serve with grated parmesan and basil. Best, Victoria
