Move over quinoa, there's a new superfood on the scene. Farro, though often overlooked, reaps major benefits. Per 1/4 cup, it has more protein than quinoa and twice the calcium, not to mention it has zero grams of fat. Here we're pairing it with Mediterranean flavors to bring you a fresh but filling entree.

Ingredients

Directions

1. Place vegetable stock and farro in a saucepan, stir, and then bring to a boil.
2. Cover with lid and reduce heat to low and simmer until farro is soft and chewy and stock is reduced. This will be about 25-30 minutes, then drain.
3. Blend the chickpeas, lemon juice, water, olive oil, tahini paste and salt until creamy and smooth.
4. Serve in bowl with Farro, cucumber, tomatoes, onion, olives and feta cheese. Drizzle with hummus dressing.

Note:
To make an individual serving, use 3 ounces of farro with about 1 cup of vegetable stock, and use a small saucepan. Portion 1/3 of the remaining ingredients. For Hummus dressing, leave the same measured ingredients and freeze the remaining sauce for another time. Sauce will be okay for 3-4 months in the freezer.
