 This meal is packed with flavor and nutrition! The roasted bell peppers and mushrooms with the herbs add the perfect balance of hearty and fresh. Let the olive oil soak into the farro and absorb the flavors of the peppers and mushrooms an extra day and enjoy for lunch the next day. This meal comes together in no time. It is a great recipe to double and take to a BBQ or serve to a crowd.
