Ingredients

  • 1 sweet potato, medium
  • 1 cup farro, cooked
  • 2 cups curly kale, stems removed
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries
  • ¼ cup cheddar cheese, grated
  • salad dressing
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  • Cook the farro according to package directions.
  • Heat the oven to 425 degrees F. Peel and dice the sweet potato into 1 inch cubes. Place on a baking sheet and toss with olive oil and a sprinkling of salt and pepper. Cook for 25 minutes, tossing halfway until soft and cooked through.
  • Take some curly kale leaves, remove the center stems, and chop into bite-sized pieces. Toss with your favorite salad dressing. (We love apple cider vinaigrette for this).
  • Into a bowl, place the farro, sweet potatoes, kale, grated cheddar cheese, and dried cranberries. Mix together and enjoy.

Notes

  • Leave out the cheddar cheese if you desire.
  • For the dressing for the kale, you can use your favorite dressing. (Though ranch is probably not the best option! We recommend a vinaigrette!) We've been using this apple cider vinaigrette
  • You can also substitute Tuscan kale for the curly kale if you desire.
  • If you don't want to use farro or can't find it, use brown rice or quinoa.
