Farro and Roasted Butternut Squash

Farro and Roasted Butternut Squash

This is a delicious dairy free, vegetarian inspired entrée or side dish.

If you do not have the time to prepare the squash from scratch, substitute a bag of frozen chopped squash from the freezer section of your local market. Warm and satisfying, serves 4 for dinner or 6-8 as a savory side dish.

2 cups pearled farro, rinsed and drained (can substitute barley)
2 t. fine grain sea salt
5 cups of water (or stock)
3 cups butternut squash cut into 1/2 inch dice
1 large red onion, roughly chopped
1 T fresh dill chopped fine
3 T olive oil
1 T balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup walnuts lightly toasted
1/2 cup Tofutti Better Than Sour Cream
2 chopped scallions for garnish

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine the farro, salt and water (or stock) in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the farro is tender. Remove from heat, drain any excess liquid, and set aside.

While the farro is cooking toss the squash and onion with the olive oil. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Arrange in a single layer of a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Turn the squash and onions every 5 to 7 minutes to get browning on equal sides. Remove from oven, sprinkle with balsamic vinegar, and let cool a bit.

To the cooked farro, add the fresh dill and Tofutti Better Than Sour Cream. Stir until just blended. Add the cooked squash and onion mixture, blend in walnuts. Turn onto a serving platter, garnish with chopped scallions.
