    Can substitute bulgur wheat for farro.

    Agree with the other notes in that a) it needs more dressing and a lot of seasoning, and b) if you're not going to let the vegetables cool down a lot (which I didnt') it will be quite mushy in texture. I preferred this eaten fridge-cold the next day. Feels quite virtuous and healthy, but the flavours aren't oustanding.

    I thought this was just ok. It needs more dressing. It makes a ton.

    I was looking for a vegetarian dinner containing farro and this looked good, though I didn't have all the ingredients. I don't think that matters too much, it's the type of recipe you can adjust to whatever vegetables you have. So I skipped eggplant and fennel but added asparagus. I really liked the result - it was good warm last night and I also liked it cold for lunch today. Because I wanted it warm I didn't wait for the roasted vegetables to cool, which may have made the squash rather mushier when chopping finely. But still it tasted great - nutty chewy farro with sweet, caramelized roasted veg. Will be repeating this one.

    The colorful vegetables give the salad a summery look, and the fresh herbs and lemon wake up all the combined flavors. I was already a fan of farro... So, I was delighted with the result here.
