Roasted Veggie Caprese Bowls

with Farro and Balsamic Vinaigrette

Hall Of Fame

While we’ll take the classic combo of mozzarella, tomato, and basil in pretty much any form, when our chefs let us know they transformed caprese into a hearty grain bowl dinner, we could barely contain ourselves. If you’re not familiar with the base, farro is an ancient grain with a nutty flavor, addictively chewy texture, and high fiber content. (Win-win-win!) Here, it’s tossed with tender roasted zucchini and juicy tomatoes, freshly torn basil, creamy mozzarella, and a tangy-sweet balsamic vinaigrette. Need we say more?

Cook Farro
Cook Farro
1

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Combine farro, stock concentrates, and 3½ cups water (6 cups for 4 servings) in a medium pot. Bring to a boil and cook until farro is tender, 25-30 minutes total. TIP: If you end up with any excess stock, simply pour it out. Alternatively, if stock evaporates before farro is done, add a splash of water.

Meanwhile, wash and dry all produce. Trim zucchini; slice into thin rounds. Cut tomato into 6 wedges (cut both tomatoes for 4 servings). Halve and peel onion; cut one half into ½-inch-thick wedges. Finely chop remaining half. Dice mozzarella into ½-inch pieces. Pick basil leaves from stems; discard stems. Finely chop half the leaves; tear remaining leaves into large pieces.

Place onion wedges in the center of a large piece of foil. Lift up and crimp sides of foil to make a bowl. Pour in half the vinegar (you’ll use the rest later) and a drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Place on one side of a baking sheet.

On opposite side of baking sheet, toss tomato and zucchini with a drizzle of olive oil, Italian Seasoning, salt, and pepper (use 2 baking sheets for 4 servings). Roast until tomato and zucchini are browned and onion wedges are softened, 15- 20 minutes. Meanwhile, heat a small, dry pan over medium-high heat. Add almonds and toast, stirring often, until fragrant and lightly browned, 3-4 minutes. Turn off heat; transfer to a small bowl.
