An Almost Vegetarian Meal
I made a dish tonight using almost all vegetables and grains, but with my weakness for smoked bacon or Italian pancetta I had to add a little. Bacon gives a lot of flavor, and a little bit will go a long way. I started by making a Faro pilaf with sliced yellow onions, garlic, fresh thyme and faro. I sauteed the onion and garlic then added the herbs and faro with water to cover. While this was simmering, I peeled baby carrots, shaved the Brussel sprouts and diced pancetta. This all went into a saute pan to slowly cook till all the vegetables were tender and had a slight char to them. By this time the faro was done and it all goes onto a plate. Good stuff and feeling good about eating my veggies.
