After eating cookies, chocolate, and holiday treats for the past few weeks, I feel like I am in sweets overload. I thought I should include a detox recipe that is healthy, but still delicious enough for everyone to like during the holiday dinner. This Warm Farro Salad with Butternut Squash is a healthy holiday side dish to get you back on track for eating right.
Farro is a great way to add more whole grains to your diet. It has a nutty flavor and a firm, chewy texture, which makes it an ideal ingredient for soups and salads. It is high in fiber, protein, and has immune-boosting magnesium. Go Farro!
The roasted butternut squash and red onions add autumn flavors and are perfect with the farro.
