With so many nutritious and delicious ingredients on this plate, you’ll be asking “orange you glad I made this for dinner?” We kid, but this recipe really does feature an outstanding array of vibrant foods. There’s cubes of vitamin-A-rich sweet potatoes, handfuls of arugula, protein-packing chickpeas, and a bright citrus dressing that ties it all together. Oh, and a bed of tender, fiber-rich farro to add some ancient grain oomph.
