After those Thai chicken buddha bowls, I’ve been on a grain bowl kick.

Maybe it’s because I’m on a crash diet since we’re going to Thailand in 6 weeks. Or maybe it’s because I’m turning 30 next month. Or maybe it’s because of those healthy eating New Year’s resolutions.

No wait.

I don’t think it’s any of those. I just really love a grain bowl.

Farro has clearly been my new obsession. That and this goddess dressing. Who knew that tarragon and mint could pack such a flavor punch?

I also really need greens in my life. I don’t think I’ve worked off all those croissants and baguettes from Paris just yet.

20 minutes1 hour

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup farro
  • 1 (16-ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chili lime seasoning
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 bunch broccolini
  • 8 ounces green beans
  • 1 1/2 cups baby spinach
  • 1/2 English cucumber, sliced
  • 1 avocado, halved, peeled, seeded and diced

For the dressing

  • 1 cup 2% Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup baby spinach
  • 1/4 cup fresh tarragon leaves
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 1 clove garlic
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Directions:

  1. To make the dressing, combine Greek yogurt, spinach, tarragon, mint, mayonnaise, lemon juice, lemon zest and garlic in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until smooth, about 30 seconds to 1 minute; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Set aside.
  2. Cook farro according to package instructions; set aside.
  3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly oil a baking sheet or coat with nonstick spray.
  4. Place garbanzo beans in a single layer on the baking sheet. Place into oven and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven; add olive oil and chili lime seasoning. Gently toss to combine. Place into oven and bake until crisp and dry, an additional 15-17 minutes. Turn off oven and open door slightly; cool completely in oven for 1 hour.
  5. Place eggs in a large saucepan and cover with cold water by 1 inch. Bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute. Cover eggs with a tight-fitting lid and remove from heat; set aside for 8-10 minutes. Drain well and let cool before peeling and cutting the eggs in half lengthwise.
  6. Place broccolini and green beans in a steamer basket and set over boiling water. Cover and steam until crisp-tender, about 2-3 minutes; drain well.
  7. Divide farro into bowls. Top with garbanzo beans, eggs, broccoli, green beans, spinach, cucumber and avocado.
  8. Serve with dressing.

    Can I substitute cilantro or basil or sage for tarragon?
    Can I use lime juice and chili powder in place of chili lime seasoning?

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    This sounds delicious!  I am going to make it tonight.  I have all ingredients except fresh tarragon and chili lime seasoning.  Can I substitute basil, cilantro or sage for tarragon? For the chili lime seasoning can I just use lime juice and chili powder or sauce?

  3. Thank you I will try this recipe tomorrow morning for sure!!!!

  4. What is the calorie count?

  5. Might try this but there should be an easier way for the Garbanzo Beans. 1 hour and 35 minutes. How can we cut back on that? Looks great otherwise.

  6. I’m going to have to meal prep these for lunches!
