Ingredients

  • 0.3 cup olive oil extra virgin 
  • ounces farro (250 gr)
  • servings parmesan shaved
  •  pomegranate 
  • small head radicchio thinly sliced
  • servings salt and pepper 
  •  truffle mushroom 
  • 30 ml vinegar 
  • ounces walnuts toasted (100gr)

Equipment

  • peeler

Directions

  1. In plenty of cold water boil farro until al dente (cooked but with a bite) - about 20-35 minutes. Feel free to add some vegetable scraps if available (unused piece of carrot, onion, celery, etc.)
  2. Drizzle over the salad a couple tablespoons of vinegar followed by three times the amount of extra virgin olive oil. Give it another good mix.To finish, give it a good shave of fresh truffles, if not available truffle salt or oil works well too. Top with a few pulls of a potato peeler across a wedge of parmesan.Allow to sit for at least 20 minutes up to a day - it needs a little time for it to all come together.Before serving - give it one last good stir, taste & adjust the seasoning - making sure the dressing is balanced (not too vinegary or oily).
