Jamie Oliver’s Farro Salad With Roasted Veg

Posted on

Dear Jess,

Happy winter! What a bummer that you can’t get here as soon as you had hoped. This storm is beautiful, and looks like it is to continue into tonight. The snowplows here keep going by though, so they’re trying to keep up!

In preparation for your (possible) visit, I picked up ingredients for this salad. I have made this a couple times. Once for Kristy’s bachelorette, and once for my wedding dinner! I have made it again today with great joy and excitement! My house smells like roasted veggies, garlic and fresh herbs!

I always make this with bulgar wheat, as it was suggested as a perfect Farro Substitute.


Farro Salad with Roasted Veg
adapted from jamieoliver.com

1 3/4 cups bulgar wheat
3 yellow zucchini, halved lengthways and chopped
2 green zucchini, halved lengthways and chopped
1 red onion, peeled and cut into wedges
2 red peppers, halved, deseeded and cut into chunks
1 medium eggplant, peeled and cut into chunks
4 cloves of garlic
extra virgin olive oil
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
herb or white wine vinegar
1 good bunch fresh herbs (I used rosemary and chives… I have done it with many different combos though)
1 squeeze lemon juice

1. Preheat the panggangan to 400F. Cover Farrow or bulgar wheat in cold water and soak for 20 minutes. Slice the zucchinis, and put them into a large bowl. Add the remaining vegetables and the garlic cloves and toss together with a good splash of olive oil. Season with pepper and a tiny pinch of salt.

2. Spread veg mix onto a roasting tray (I used 2 foil-lined cookie sheet) in one layer, as they will roast better this way. Roast in the preheated panggangan for 30-40 minutes, removing the trays and carefully shaking them now and then, until the vegetables are cooked through and crisp around the edges. Sprinkle a little vinegar over the vegetables as soon as they come out of the panggangan and set aside to cool. (I usually forget to do this… it still tastes fine if you do too.)

3. Chop herbs and set aside. Place the Farrow or bulgar wheat in a large saucepan, cover with fresh cold water and bring to the boil. Simmer for 20 minutes, or until tender, and drain well. Dress with olive oil and the lemon juice, season with salt and pepper, and toss with the roasted vegetables and chopped herbs.

4. Serve warm or cool. It tastes good both ways!

The snow is still blowing outside. As I look out the window, snowmobiles are passing on the road, and the neighbours are frantically shovelling their driveways trying to keep up with the snowfall.

I love you and hope to see you soon!

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.

Love,
