From the Test Kitchen

These colorful bowls feature hearty farro tossed with tender brussels sprouts, spinach, and sweet peppers—topped with a vibrant drizzle of chile oil made with Calabrian chile paste, a specialty product made of fragrant red chiles from Calabria (a region in southern Italy). It’s delightfully tempered by the bright, creamy lemon yogurt served underneath.

Title
  • 2 Pasture-Raised Eggs
  • ½ cup Semi-Pearled Farro
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 1 Lemon
  • 3 oz Baby Spinach
  • 4 oz Sweet Peppers
  • 4 oz Brussels Sprouts
  • 1½ tsps Calabrian Chile Paste
  • 2 Dried Turkish Figs
  • ½ cup Plain Nonfat Greek Yogurt
Cook the farro:
1 Cook the farro:

Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Fill a separate, small pot 3/4 of the way up with water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, add the farro to the medium pot of salted boiling water. Cook, uncovered, 18 to 20 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Cover to keep warm. 

Cook the eggs:
2 Cook the eggs:

Meanwhile, carefully add the eggs to the remaining pot of boiling water and cook 7 minutes for soft-boiled, or until your desired degree of doneness. Drain thoroughly and rinse under cold water 30 seconds to 1 minute to stop the cooking process. When cool enough to handle, peel the cooked eggs. Season with salt and pepper. 

Prepare the ingredients & make the chile oil:
3 Prepare the ingredients & make the chile oil:

Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Roughly chop the figs. Place in a bowl; cover with hot water. Set aside to rehydrate at least 10 minutes. Cut off and discard the stem ends of the brussels sprouts; quarter lengthwise. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove the cores. Halve lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Zest the lemon to get 1 teaspoon (if you don’t have a zester, use a peeler to remove the yellow rind of the lemon, avoiding the white pith; mince the rind). Quarter and deseed the lemon. In a bowl, combine the lemon zest and yogurt; season with salt and pepper. In a separate bowl, whisk together the chile paste and 2 tablespoons of olive oil

Cook the vegetables:
4 Cook the vegetables:

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the quartered brussels sprouts. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the sliced peppers and chopped garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened. Add the spinach; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until wilted. Turn off the heat.

Finish the farro & serve your dish:
5 Finish the farro & serve your dish:

To the pot of cooked farro, add the cooked vegetables, rehydrated figs (discarding the liquid), and the juice of 2 lemon wedges; stir to combine. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Evenly divide the lemon yogurt between two dishes; spread into an even layer. Top with the finished farro, seasoned eggs, and as much of the chile oil as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Serve the remaining lemon wedges on the side. Enjoy!
