  1. Preheat oven to 425° Cook Farro according to the directions, using the broth. Drain and put in a large bowl. Toss cauliflower with olive oil and some kosher salt.

Recipe Notes

You can add rotisserie or grilled chicken to up the protein.

If you were able to save a few whole sage leaves, let’s fry them up. It’s really simple. Pour 1/4 cup of olive oil in a small, shallow fry pan and heat it up until it moves and listens. The best way to test is to put a few drops of water in. If they sizzle and dance, your oil is ready. From there, simply put your dry sage leaves (no more water) in and cook them for just a few minutes on each side. Watch them. You don’t want them to burn. Once they are done, place on a paper towel to drain and cool slightly. Arrange on your cooked cauliflower bake and serve. Yum!
