By using a little egg and a touch of finely grated Parmesan, I was able to make farro cakes that didn't fall apart in the pan. How you serve them is up to you, but the possibilities are endless.

1 person made this

IngredientsServes: 6

  • 700ml water
  • 200g farro, not rinsed
  • 1 tablespoon coarse sea salt, or to taste
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1/2 onion, finely diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 40g finely diced red pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 30g freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil for frying

MethodPrep:15min ›Cook:53min ›Extra time:1hr10min chilling › Ready in:2hr18min

  1. Place water, farro and salt in a large pot. Stir in thyme, onion and garlic. Bring to the boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer until farro is very tender, 40 to 45 minutes. Drain well for about 10 minutes (do not rinse). Remove sprigs of thyme.
  2. Transfer farro to a large bowl. While farro is still hot, add red pepper, black pepper, grated cheese, egg and cayenne pepper. Mix thoroughly and allow mixture to come to room temperature. Cover with cling film; refrigerate until thoroughly chilled, about 1 hour.
  3. Heat oil in pan over medium-high heat. Because there are no binders like flour or breadcrumbs, the cakes are almost impossible to form with your hands. Use an ice cream scoop and pack it with the farro mixture; turn out onto hot pan. Gently press down farro cakes to slightly flatten them. After a minute or so when cakes are frying nicely, reduce heat to medium. Continue cooking the first side until you can see the bottom turning brown and a thick crust forming, 4 to 5 minutes. Do not flip until a crisp brown crust has formed.
  4. Flip cakes and continue frying over medium heat until second side forms a crispy crust, 4 or 5 minutes.

Parmesan cheese:

Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.

Vegan Crispy Duck and Pancakes | #VegItUp

I used to eat meat and when I did, one of my favourites was Crispy Duck and Pancakes so when it came to doing a bit of #vegitup work, I decided to create vegan crispy duck and pancakes. And you know what? It really is simple and amazing too!

I am sure that you will have heard of ‘mock duck’ at some time in your life – especially if you grew up in the 70’s or 80’s. Well, this recipe uses the Companion brand tinned stuff that you can buy in Chinese Supermarkets, which I might add is way cheaper than the Grano Vita version that you can buy in Holland and Barretts and many other health food stores.

To be honest, I made this for our evening meal and we did have to have pudding afterwards. For some reason I thought that we would still have the same appetite as when I was a kid when I planned this one in! So I would actually have this as a starter or as part of a Chinese style platter with spring rolls and other goodies.

The mock duck is made from soya pieces and flavouring. It comes in a bit of a juice which you will want to drain off for this recipe. If you’re making some other dishes to go with it, I would save it and add it to the sauce as it has a lovely savoury flavour. (waste not want not, right!)


“I love cast iron for pizza because the pan gets super-hot and holds heat so well — it really mimics a pizza stone,” says Katie Workman, the blogger behind The Mom 100 and author of "Dinner Solved: 100 Ingenious Recipes that Make the Whole Family Happy, Including You". Workman’s secret trick is to preheat the pan in a 450°F oven then add the dough without any sauce or toppings and let it cook for a few minutes to puff and firm up for a chewy, springy pizza. Next, add your favorite sauce and toppings and finish baking the pizza. It’s that easy.

How to Make Almond Flour Pancakes

This almond flour pancake recipe is super simple to make, so it’s a great recipe for quick weekday breakfasts as well as lazy weekend brunches. Here’s how it goes:

First, whisk together the wet ingredients in one bowl and the dry ingredients in another.

Then, pour the wet ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients, and mix until just combined.

Finally, cook! Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-low heat, and brush it with a little olive oil (coconut oil would work here too!). Use a 1/4-cup measuring cup to scoop the batter into the pan, and cook each pancake for 1-2 minutes per side. Almond flour pancakes darken more quickly than regular pancakes do, so watch them closely. Reduce the heat as needed so that the outsides don’t burn before the middles have a chance to cook through. Repeat the cooking process with the remaining batter, and enjoy!

From Poached to Sautéed, Here Are 40 of Our Best Shrimp Recipes

Shrimp is one of our favorite protein options to cook with. It's heart-healthy, super versatile, and easy to find in the grocery store. When cooking with shrimp, save the shells for seafood stock. If you're buying fresh, feel free to ask the fishmonger to de-vein them for you, but it's easy enough to do at home with a careful hand and sharp paring knife.

There are so many different ways to cook with shrimp. Use them for delicious pasta recipes, takeout-inspired stir-fries, soups and stews, and crowd-friendly appetizers. Shrimp shines in a summertime clambake alongside corn on the cob and baby red potatoes. We also love a creamy, flavorful bisque year-round (but who can deny that it's most delicious when served seaside?). Our recipe for Pressure-Cooker Shrimp Bisque is made with a homemade seafood stock using shrimp shells (told you they would come in handy!), plus bite-sized pieces of sweet shrimp. A combination of paprika and fresh dill brighten the bowl.

Another one of our favorite ways to cook shrimp is with pasta. Our Cream-Free Shrimp Alfredo is a lighter take on fettuccine alfredo. This clever recipe uses pasta water instead of heavy cream the starches in the water help to create a thick, rich sauce. And, of course, we have to include at least one recipe for Shrimp Scampi, but we took it one step further and included two! Our classic version is done just right, with plenty of fresh parsley, garlic, lemon juice, butter, white wine, and red pepper flakes. If you're looking to go low-carb, try Shrimp Scampi with Yellow-Squash Noodles, which substitutes spiralized vegetable noodles in place of pasta.

No matter which way you fry, stir, boil, or bake them, these shrimp recipes offer endless inspiration for weeknight meals and dinner parties alike.

Sweet + Spicy Thai Farro Salad

Yep! One more busy weekend coming up and then I have two full months to relax and catch up on cooking and blogging! :) I could not be more happy to have some time to experiment in the kitchen during the fall months.

I loved the nectarines in this salad. I think next time i’ll try it with fresh peaches. The nectarines were great with the spicy chili-garlic sauce and sour lime juice. Yum.

so pretty! I love all of the colors and of course anything asian inspired. Sound like you guys had quite a fun weekend!

Hooray for ancient grains! I love the peach and pepper combination in this salad. :)

Did you even have to to breathe – what a crazy yet amazing weekend!

And this salad – what a way to come back to blogging, so amazing…I have been totally craving farro and you jst inspired me!

This salad sounds amazing, and I love the Asian flair – I’ve been wanting to make a dinner salad recipe using stone fruit, and this sounds perfect!
Also, I’m with you on the long movies – I can’t sit in a theatre seat for that long without a break! And I’ve always thought the jive looked so fun when I see them do it on So You Think You Can Dance, but I imagine it would be hard to learn!

What a great looking salad! Love the peaches in there.
And forget the jive – the lindy hop is where it’s at!

lol, i have a short attention span as well, i hate long movies! this looks awesome, i just love the peaches in here!

This looks fantastic! Nectarines, bell peppers, cashews and FARRO! I adore that grain! This is definitely going on the “Must Make” List.

Looks delicious! And I love the photograph!

Ooh, I think I just found my lunch for the week! I’m picky about my salads but I LOVE ones with fruit in them.

that looks so amazing! i love the nectarines!!

Sounds like you’ve been having an amazing summer! I love all the combinations of flavours in this salad, and how healthy it is!

I have never cook with farro before and love to cook with a delicious farro dish like yours one day :D

Delicious recipe, Courtney. This salad is definitely light and so summery :)

Just tucking into a bowl of your Sweet and Spicy Thai Farro Salad now. It’s really different. I used quinoa but will try it again with Farro. I was just wondering how do you think this would be with peanut and maybe sesame oil instead of the Canola? I thought it could make it even more Asian tasting but maybe that would be too many flavours? I have a habit of sometimes putting too many spices and sauces. Anyway, thanks for the recipe, very creative, love it!

The cholesterol diet is an eating plan that increases the cholesterol-lowering foods in your diet and decreases or eliminates high cholesterol foods. Unhealthy eating habits are one of the major contributors to high cholesterol and eating the right foods will help you get your health back on track. The cholesterol diet:

  • Eliminates saturated and trans fats that raise LDL (bad) cholesterol and lower your HDL (good) cholesterol, such as baked goods, processed meats, French fries, crackers and margarine
  • Increases healthy fats such as nuts, avocado, and unsaturated oils like olive and canola
  • Limits foods with high cholesterol like shrimp, liver, egg yolks and whole milk dairy products
  • Includes plenty of fibre, fruits, vegetables, and fish that are high in omega 3 fatty acids
  • Limits salt and alcohol intake

Anchovy recipes

Anchovy is often cast in an awkward light, being a taste that people seem to either love or loathe, but there are plenty of reasons to enjoy the assertive flavour of this fish, whether fresh or, as frequently seen in this country, tinned in oil with its slivered fillets packed full of salty, savoury flavour. This collection of anchovy recipes features dishes pairing anchovies with other seafood, meat or on its own.

Garlic and anchovies make a welcome appearance in Bryan Webb's red mullet with chilli and garlic oil dish, adding an umami richness neatly complemented by the bite of the chilli.

The piquant tang of anchovy can also add an extra layer of complexity to beef and lamb Alan Murchison's lamb rump recipe is garnished with the briny fish, while Geoffrey Smeddle's poached fillet of beef is served up with salsa verde, a vibrant herby sauce in which anchovy is a staple ingredient.

Tasted this when we went on a trip to coorg last year, ever since wanted to recreate it. Finally remembered it and made these coorg kadumbuttu with spicy and tangy tomato chutney for evening tea..It was totally yummy.

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
