Wholesome farro bowls combine salmon and sweet potatoes with a zippy parsley-lime dressing.
Farro bowls with salmon & sweet potato offer something for everyone at the table. Adults can eat a farro bowl tossed with salmon and sweet potatoes and drenched in a zippy parsley-lime dressing. Kids can deconstruct the ingredients and just eat plain salmon and sweet potatoes with butter, like mine did.
And maybe you boil a pot of noodles for the kids, at the same time that you boil the farro? If they eat noodles instead of farro, it's no big deal. Everyone leaves the table full and happy. And that's the goal, right?
What I really love about this dinner is that it can be made in 4 easy steps that can be accomplished while moving in and out of the kitchen, alternating cooking with parenting.
You can cook everything at once, or make the ingredients throughout the day and store them in the fridge until dinner time.
Make Farro Bowls in 4 Easy Steps
- Steam or bake sweet potatoes (I use an Instant Pot)
- Boil farro or cook in the Instant Pot
- Bake salmon
- Blend dressing
- Combine and eat!
Bonus: There's lunch to look forward to the next day. I always make enough for leftovers. Eat the same farro bowls again, or mix up the ingredients in new ways. I like to smash cold salmon and avocado on a thick slice of toasted bread and drenched it in leftover parsley-lime dressing.
Yum and yum!
