Ingredients

  • 1 cup farro (dry)
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 4 (1/2-inch thick) slices globe eggplant
  • 1 medium zucchini cut into 1/2-inch thick slices
  • 1 red bell pepper cored & cut into quarters
  • 1 yellow or orange bell pepper cored & cut into quarters
  • Olive oil spray
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 5 large basil leaves thinly sliced
  • 4 large mint leaves chopped
  • 3 tablespoons minced flat-leaf parsley

The dressing:

Instructions

  • In a medium saucepan, combine the farro, broth and water. Bring to a boil. Lower heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until the farro is tender. Drain out any excess liquid. Fluff the farro and let it cool to room temperature.
  • Preheat the grill to medium heat.
  • Arrange the vegetables on baking sheet and lightly coat with olive oil spray and season with salt and pepper.
  • Transfer the vegetables to the grill and cook until the vegetables are tender, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  • Chop the vegetables into bite-sized pieces and mix into the farro, along with the basil, mint and parsley.
  • Toss with the dressing. Serve.

The dressing:

  • In a bowl, whisk together the tahini, lemon juice, water, maple syrup and salt. Using a microplane, grate the garlic into the dressing and whisk to combine.
  • For a liquid dressing, whisk in additional water. If you make the dressing ahead of time, you’ll have to whisk in more water to loosen it up again.
