Simple Arugula Salad
What I Used:
  • Farro
  • Shaved Asiago or Parmesan Cheese
  • Bag of Spinach
  • Garlic Cloves (2 or 3)
  • 1 tbsp Butter
  • Water
  • Salt
  • Pepper
How to do It:
  1. Rinse the Farro and throw it in a pot.
  2. Pour water in the pot, about twice as much as the Farro.
  3. Bring the pot to a boil.
  4. Once boiling, reduce the flame to low, cover the pot and wait for all the water to be absorbed. About 20ish minutes?
  5. Chop up the garlic cloves super tiny. Set aside about a handful of shaved cheese, and 1tbsp slice of butter... I know this blog doesn't have measurements on it, but the butter I used has tbsp measurements on the wrapper so it doesn't actually require any measuring! :)
  6. When most of the water is absorbed, grab a handful of spinach and tear the leaves with your fingers before throwing it into the pot. Mix it as you ago, and add as much as you'd like!
  7. Throw in the butter, garlic, and cheese and mix! Let it all melt together and spread throughout evenly.
  8. YUMMMMMM. Dats it.
  9. Grab a bowl and pour yourself a helping of vitamins. You'll probably need to add a lot of salt and pepper too, so have that on hand.
  10. YAY! You're welcome you little chef!!
