Spiced sprouts, farro & pine nuts..

This was my dinner last night, and too good not to share! 

It includes…

Coconut oil, 2 tablespoons  

Red onions, 4 small, peeled and roughly chopped

Garlic, 4 large cloves, peel and roughly chopped 

Sprouts, a couple of handfuls, outer leaves removed, and quartered 

Shawarma spice mix, a couple of tablespoons (you can find details in this post)

Farro, half a cup, cooked my way 

Pine nuts, a little handful 

Dried barberries, a little handful

Tahini, as much as you want!

I cooked it pretty much as I’ve written the list above: 

I heated the coconut oil in a wide pan and started by cooking the onions over a medium heat for 5-10 minutes; I then added the garlic and sprouts and cooked them for a few minutes, before adding the spice mix. I cooked it for a few minutes, adding a splash of water as necessary to stop the spices from burning, before adding the farro and pine nuts. Once it was all warm enough and the sprouts were cooked sufficiently, I served myself half of the panful, topped with dried barberries and drizzled with tahini..

The collection of ingredients worked so well together, the farro added a lovely chew and the pine nuts added a nice crunch, and of course the tahini added the perfect finish! 

Sprouts need never be boring! Enjoy!
