TOASTED FARRO AND LAMB BOWL

we got the most gorgeous ceramics from Lux Eros recently (use code LUXDLF for 15% off your order!) and we wanted to make something pretty to eat that would compliment the colors of the plates and bowls (love the green and pink combo!). we landed on toasted farro bowls with lamb meatballs and creamy lemon feta dressing, soooo good! we cooked the farro as directed and then heated olive oil in a fry pan and toasted the farro until it was slightly crispy and browned. make these, they might even rival our famous greek bowls. – joanie
