I found the inspiration here on a cute little blog called ClothesHorse NYC. It wasn't exactly a recipe, but she gave a decent enough explanation. I did search like crazy on Men's Health, but couldn't find it.
Also, I had never heard of Farro before. I asked 3 people (3 PEOPLE!?!) at Whole Foods to find where it was. Is it a produce, is it a liquid, is it bigger than a breadbox?? Alas, someone took me to where it was (by the rice and other grains), but of course they were out. Good thing the Hubs was there to solve the problem; simply by crouching down and looking at the back of the shelf behind the other things that were not Farro. Where would I be without him? Farro-less?
Anyways, here it is.... hope my vegetarian friends and family (Aunt Dianne/ Uncle Ron) find it helpful.
Saute chopped white onion and garlic in a pan.
I pre-cooked the Farro for about 6 mins.
Transfer both the Farro, onion, and garlic, to a cast iron.
Add tomato sauce
Add red beans
Add red chili flakes
When the pan is really hot and the tomato sauce starts to boil a little, crack a few eggs right on top.
** this was the scary part. It didn't seem like the eggs were going to cook, so I put a lid on it and they cooked perfectly.
Put in the broiler for about 5 mins (should have added cheese here).
While the whole mess is in the broiler- grill some butter bread.
Serve hot and right outta the pan. We just put spoonfuls on top of the bread.In case, you are in the mood for a history lesson, here is a little tid-bit on Farro.
