A hearty, seasonal grain bowl brimming with roasted vegetables and scrambled JUST Egg.
- 1 cup JUST Egg, or 2 JUST Egg Folded
- ½ cup farro, dried
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon parsley, finely chopped
- 1 heaping cup Brussels sprouts, halved
- ½ a winter squash, like acorn or butternut, cubed or sliced ¼-inch thick
- ½ a red onion, cut into thick wedges
- 4 oz cremini mushrooms, quartered
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 2-3 cloves garlic, minced or crushed
- Salt & pepper, to taste
- Pomegranate seeds or dried cranberries, for garnish
- Toasted pepitas, for garnish
Cook the farro
Bring 1 cup water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Once boiling, add the farro along with ¼ teaspoon of salt. Cover and reduce to a simmer for about 20 minutes, until the grains are tender. Drain and rinse. Mix in the parsley and set aside.
Start roasting the vegetables
Preheat oven to 400°F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Add the winter squash and halved Brussels sprouts to the pan. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and toss to coat. Roast for about 15 minutes.
Make the balsamic dressing
While squash is cooking, in a medium bowl, combine 2 tablespoons olive oil, balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, garlic and a pinch of pepper. Chop the red onion and mushrooms as directed. Add them to the bowl with the balsamic dressing and stir to coat evenly.
Roast the mushrooms and onions
After about 15 minutes, pull the roasting pan from the oven. Push the winter squash and Brussels to one side of the pan to make room for the rest of the vegetables. Add the mushrooms and onions and return to the oven for another 15-20 mins, or until all the vegetables are tender and lightly browned.
Cook the JUST Egg
If using JUST Egg, scramble your desired serving just before you’re ready to serve your bowls. Add a bit of olive oil to a small, nonstick skillet over medium heat and scramble (like an egg) until all the liquid is cooked through. Season with salt and pepper.
If using JUST Egg Folded, chop into bite-sized pieces and add to the roasting pan along with the mushrooms and onions.
Assemble the bowl
Fill each bowl with desired amount of farro, and top with roasted vegetables and JUST Egg. Garnish with toasted pepitas and fresh pomegranate seeds. Enjoy!
