  • Author: Raquel Smith
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 3 bowls 1x


This hearty farro grain bowl is super quick and easy to make with delicious, simple flavors and tons of healthy add-ins.


  • 8 ounces quick-cook farro
  • 2 vegan sausages
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 15-ounce can garbanzo beans
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 big handfuls spinach
  • Hot sauce, optional
  • Nutritional yeast or grated pecorino, optional


  1. Cook the farro according to package directions. Set aside.
  2. Slice the vegan sausages lengthwise down the middle, then into 1/4-inch half moons.
  3. Heat a pan with the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the sliced sausages. Cook, tossing with a spatula often, until they start to turn golden-brown in color.
  4. Rinse and drain the garbanzo beans. Add to the pan with the sausages. Continue to cook, tossing often, until the garbanzo beans are heated through. You may need to add a bit more oil to keep them from sticking to the pan.
  5. Add the cumin and paprika, stirring to combine. Add the spinach and cook until wilted, about 2 minutes. Add salt and pepper, to taste.
  6. Divide the cooked farro on the bottom of three serving bowls. Top with the garbanzo bean mixture, and finish with your favorite hot sauce and yeast or cheese. Enjoy!
