From the Test Kitchen

In this vibrant spin on the beloved Middle Eastern spiced lentil and rice dish, we’re swapping in hearty farro for the usual rice, then combining it all with sweet onion and peppers. It’s served over a layer of labneh cheese seasoned with za’atar, for a bit of creaminess in every richly flavored bite.
