Servings: 12 Yield: 12 cups Active Time 25 mins Total Time 1 hr


  • 2 cups farro
  • 4 cups vegetable stock
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 6 cups cauliflower florets cut into 1-inch pieces (from about 1 head)
  • 6 rainbow carrots, peeled and sliced into 1/4-inch rounds (4 cups)
  • 8 ounces cremini mushrooms, trimmed and quartered (4 cups)
  • 1/3 cup plus 2 Tbs. olive oil, divided
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/3 cup skinned hazelnuts, toasted and chopped

Make It

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Combine the farro, vegetable stock, cumin, ginger, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. black pepper. Cook according to package directions substituting vegetable broth for water. Spread the cooked farro on a parchment-lined baking pan and toast in the oven 15 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and let cool, tossing occasionally.

2. Meanwhile, line two large sheet pans with parchment paper. Toss the cauliflower, carrots and mushrooms with 2 Tbs. olive oil, 1 tsp. salt, and 1/2 tsp. black pepper. Divide between the sheet pans and roast until the vegetables are tender and golden, 25 to 30 minutes, stirring once.

3. Make the dressing. In a small bowl whisk together 1/3 cup olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and mustard.

4. In a large bowl, toss the roasted vegetables with the toasted farro and dressing. Stir in fresh parsley, and top with toasted hazelnuts. Serve warm or at room temperature.


  • You can cook and toast the farro and roast the vegetables up to 2 days ahead.
  • Farro stays a bit chewy even when fully cooked.
