From the Test Kitchen

In this recipe, classic fried rice gets a twist: for hearty texture, we’re swapping in farro—a type of wheat that boasts an especially nutty flavor—then mixing in carrots, eggs, green beans, and shishito peppers (which tend to be mild, but about one in ten can have quite a kick!).

tips & techniques
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. Once boiling, add the farro and cook, uncovered, 18 to 20 minutes, or until tender. Drain thoroughly. 

Prepare the ingredients
2 Prepare the ingredients

Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard any stem ends from the green beans; halve crosswise. Peel the carrots; thinly slice on an angle. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Peel the ginger; finely chop to get 2 teaspoons (you may have extra). Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. In a bowl, combine the chopped garlic, chopped ginger, and sliced white bottoms of the scallions. Crack the eggs into a separate bowl. Season with salt and pepper; beat until smooth. Roughly chop the peanuts. Cut off and discard the stem of the pepper. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then medium dice. Thoroughly wash your hands immediately after handling. 

Cook the vegetables & eggs
3 Cook the vegetables & eggs

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the halved green beans and diced pepper in an even layer; season with salt and pepper. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned and slightly softened. Add the sliced carrots; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 4 to 5 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the prepared garlic, ginger, and white bottoms of the scallions and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened. Using a spoon, move the vegetables to one side of the pan. Add 2 teaspoons of olive oil to the other side, then add the beaten eggs. Cook, constantly stirring the eggs, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until cooked through. Stir the vegetables and eggs to thoroughly combine. Transfer to a large bowl. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Cover with foil to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.
