    From the Test Kitchen

    Bright, seasonal flavors abound in this vibrant vegetarian bowl thanks to sautéed snap peas and a duo of marinated sweet pear and fresh tomatoes. We’re stirring it all into our hearty, ras el hanout-infused farro, then topping it with a rich fried egg, crumbly feta cheese, and fresh mint.
