Farro, a cleaner nuttier taste from barley, pairs so well with jalapeno chicken sausage, black cherries, mushrooms, spinach, and goat cheese. Serve with toasted baguette. Wow! Who would have thunk it?

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook farro in the boiling water until tender, 20 to 30 minutes. Drain.
  2. Cook and stir cherries in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until liquid is released, 5 to 7 minutes. Add red wine and 1 pinch salt; simmer until cherries soften and sauce is slightly reduced, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. Heat olive oil in a frying pan; cook and stir sausage until browned, 5 to 10 minutes. Add mushrooms and a pinch salt. Cook and stir until liquid is released from mushrooms, about 5 minutes. Stir farro and white wine into mushroom mixture; cook until wine has evaporated, about 5 minutes.
  4. Remove pan from heat. Add spinach, parsley, and cherry sauce; stir until spinach is slightly wilted. Stir in goat cheese until melted; toss well.

I liked it a lot. Can't say the same for my 6 year old but she is a picky eater. We used dried cherries because we couldn't find fresh ones and it seemed to work out ok. It was good recipe that I'm looking forward to trying again.

I tried it just as it's written and it was delicious. I was looking for a recipe for Farro and this fit the bill.

We enjoyed this recipe, but I was nervous how all of these flavors would go together. My dinner guests and I all agreed that getting tart and flavorful cherries is important for this recipe.
