Sweet Fresh Minted Peas & Farro

Serves 4


1/2 jar Ugly Tomato Sauce
1 lb organic frozen peas, thawed
1 cup farro (presoaked)
2 1/2 cups water
1 small onion (chopped) 
1/4 cup fresh mint (chopped) 
1 tsp Sea Salt
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 cup farro water*


Drain the farro and combine it with enough fresh water to cover it in a small pot (about 2 1/2 cups). Add salt and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for up to 25 minutes (until grains are tender). Meanwhile, in a medium pan over medium flame, heat the olive oil and sauté the onions till translucent. Add peas and cook for 15 min (covered). Drain the farro (you should have some water left in the pot– *reserve about a cup). Add farro, 1/2 jar of Ugly Tomato Sauce and farro water to the peas. Bring to a boil. Chop the mint, add to mix and serve.

Soak the farro in cold water for 8-12 hours before cooking. If you can’t soak your farro overnight, or you simply forgot, no worries! Just increase its cooking time to 45-60 min until tender
