tips & techniques
Cook the farro:
1 Cook the farro:

Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Heat a large pot of salted water to boiling on high. Once boiling, add the farro and cook, uncovered, 16 to 18 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot; drizzle with olive oil. Cover to keep warm.

Prepare & roast the vegetables:
2 Prepare & roast the vegetables:

While the farro cooks, wash and dry the fresh produce. Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil. Peel and small dice the sweet potatoes. Cut off and discard the bottom 1/2 inch of the broccoli stem; cut the broccoli into small pieces, keeping the florets intact. Place the vegetables in a large bowl. Add as much of the chile paste as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Transfer to the sheet pan and arrange in an even layer. Roast 20 to 22 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Leaving the oven on, carefully transfer the roasted vegetables to the pot of cooked farro. Reserving the sheet pan, discard the aluminum foil.

Prepare the remaining ingredients:
3 Prepare the remaining ingredients:

While the vegetables roast, cut off and discard the ends of the radishes; thinly slice into rounds. Peel the shallot and finely chop to get 2 tablespoons (you may have extra). Stack the tortillas; cut in half, then cut crosswise into ¼-inch- wide strips. Peel and medium dice the orange. Pit, peel, and medium dice the avocado. Place in a bowl and top with half the vinegar to prevent browning. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Marinate the radishes:
4 Marinate the radishes:

While the vegetables continue to roast, in a medium bowl, combine the sliced radishes, chopped shallot, honey (kneading the packet before opening), and remaining vinegar; season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, for at least 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Toast the tortilla stirps:
5 Toast the tortilla stirps:

While the radishes marinate, place the tortilla strips on the sheet pan used to roast the vegetables. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Toast in the oven 5 to 7 minutes, or until lightly browned and crispy. Remove from the oven.

Finish & serve your dish:
6 Finish & serve your dish:
