Recipe 1

Chickpea & Farro Tabbouleh



Ingredients for 5 servings

  • 1 cup uncooked farro
  • 1 bay leaf (optional)
  • Salad
    • 2 roma tomatoes, diced
    • 1 medium cucumber, diced (peeled is optional)
    • 2 cups fresh parsley, minced and chopped
    • 2 tablespoons mint, diced
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • juice from 1 lemon
    • sea salt & pepper to taste
    • 2 radish, diced and sliced (OPTIONAL – I only added it to get rid of other veggies in my fridge)
  • 1 can (15oz) chickpeas, drained
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • pinch of sea salt & pepper
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • Caper Tahini Sauce (see below)




Step 1

Bring about 3 cups of water to a boil. Add farro (and a bay leaf for extra flavor) and cook according to the instructions given, or until farro has cooked through and has a soft, yet chewy texture, about 25 minutes. Drain and set aside to cool in a large bowl. Once the farro has cooled down, add the salad ingredients and mix everything together. Set aside in the fridge to let the flavors better meld.

Step 2

Season the chickpeas with paprika and cumin.  Set a carbon steel skillet on medium high heat.  Once hot, add avocado oil then add the chickpeas.  Cook for 4 – 6 minutes until dark sears appear on the outside.


Step 3

Add farro mix to a bowl.  Top with a serving of chickpeas.  Drizzle with optional tahini sauce.  For meal prep, add the ingredients to a stainless steel container since this can be eaten cold.  Keep the sauce separate until  you are ready  to enjoy!

Hey, I'm Kevin

My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and maintaining an active lifestyle.

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget.
