Cook the farro & lentils
1 Cook the farro & lentils

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, add the lentils and cook 7 minutes. Carefully add the farro to the pot and continue to cook 21 to 23 minutes, or until the farro and lentils are tender. Turn off the heat. Drain and thoroughly rinse under warm water; return to the pot.

Roast the bell peppers

Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Place the bell peppers on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; turn to coat. Roast 12 to 14 minutes, or until browned and blistered. Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven. Set aside to cool at least 5 minutes.

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced onion; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes, or until softened. Add the chopped garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until softened. Add the spinach; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until wilted and combined. Turn off the heat; add the vinegar (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) and stir until combined.

Transfer the cooled bell peppers to a cutting board. Carefully halve each pepper; remove the stems, ribs, and seeds. Evenly divide half the filling between the roasted pepper halves.
