Instructions

Wash produce before use

1

Heat the farro and toss with spinach

Choose your heating method (for microwave option, heat just before serving): 

Our chefs think this cooks best in the microwave.

 

  • Microwave oven  | 5–6 minutes

Transfer the farro-apricot blend and the aromatics into a microwave-safe dish and mix.  Sprinkle the farro mixture with 2 tablespoons water. Place a damp paper towel over the top of the dish and microwave for 3 minutes. Stir, re-cover, and microwave for 2 to 3 minutes more, or until heated through. 

 

  • Conventional oven  |  25–30 minutes

Heat the oven to 425°F. 

Transfer the farro-apricot blend and the aromatics into an ovenproof dish and mix. Sprinkle the farro mixture with 2 tablespoons water. Cover the dish with foil and bake for 15 minutes. Stir, re-cover, and bake for 10 to 15 minutes more, or until heated through.

 

Transfer the farro into a large bowl and toss with the spinach and Dijon-caper dressing. Season to taste with salt and pepper. While the farro is heating, cook your protein.

2

Cook your protein

  • Pat your protein dry with a paper towel (if using shrimp or scallops, rinse and drain, then pat dry; if using tofu, cut into ½-inch cubes). Season the protein with salt and pepper. 

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add your protein.

 

Fish: Cook the fish (skin side down for the skin-on salmon) until lightly browned (and the salmon skin is crisp), 1 to 2 minutes for pre-cooked salmon and 4 to 5 minutes for all other fish. Turn and cook until the flesh is opaque and flaky, 1 to 2 minutes for pre-cooked salmon and 2 to 4 minutes for all other fish. Transfer to a cutting board to cool slightly. Using a fork or knife, flake or cut into 2-inch pieces. 

 

Shrimp: Cook the shrimp, turning once, until firm and cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes per side for regular shrimp, 2 to 3 minutes per side for jumbo shrimp. Transfer to a plate. 

 

Scallops: Cook the scallops without turning until golden brown on one side and starting to turn opaque, 2 to 4 minutes. Turn and continue cooking for about 30 seconds for translucent or 1 to 2 minutes for opaque. Transfer to a plate. 

 

Chicken: Cook the chicken, turning once, until lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Reduce the heat to medium-low and continue cooking, turning occasionally, until firm, cooked, and hot throughout, 1 minute for pre-grilled chicken and 5 to 8 minutes for all other chicken. Transfer to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes. Cut into ½-inch-thick slices. 

 

Steaks: Cook the steaks, turning frequently, until they are well browned and medium-rare, 4 to 6 minutes for rib-eyes and New York strips, 8 to 12 minutes for filet mignons. Transfer to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes. Cut into ½-inch-thick slices. 

 

Tofu: Cook the tofu, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned and crisp, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate.

Serve

Transfer the farro and spinach to individual bowls and add your protein. Spoon the green goddess dressing on top and serve.
