Mediterranean Skillet with Farro

Pinterest is my absolute favorite source of recipe inspiration, but I’m also a huge fan of modifying recipes based on ingredients I already have on hand. I came across this recipe from Paleo Newbie and was determined to make it in some capacity! I love anything with sun-dried tomatoes, and it incorporates a good variety of vegetables which is perfect for my less than adventurous husband.

The recipe came together fairly quickly and made enough for a couple of lunches as leftovers. The recipe didn’t call for any grains, but I served the skillet over a bed of faro to incorporate some healthy carbs and make the dish a little more well rounded. If you’re not a fan of any of the ingredients, you could easily sub in another veggie and it would still taste great!
