Meal Prep Farro, Chicken & Goat Cheese Bowls


I’ve been trying to venture out a bit with some of my carb sources. Im not a huge quinoa fan (just doesn’t really satisfy me) so I decided to try farro and I’m in LOVE! It’s chewy and satisfying-similar to barley. Mix it with creamy goat cheese, balsamic, and some roasted red peppers and you’ve got a delicious meal! This one is easy to adjust to your preferences and portion size for your own meal prep. ⁣

Ingredients:⁣

🔹¾ cup uncooked farro ⁣

🔹1 bunch asparagus, trimmed⁣

🔹15-20oz Grilled chicken, diced⁣

🔹5oz crumbled goat cheese (or feta if you prefer)⁣

🔹8oz jar roasted red peppers or 20 cherry tomatoes⁣

🔹1.5 cups chicken broth (or water)⁣

🔹Light balsamic dressing or other dressing of choice (I use simply 60 balsamic or trader joe’s dill dressing)⁣

🔹Mixed greens or shredded kale (optional)⁣

Directions:⁣

🔹Place the farro and chicken broth in your instant pot and cook on high pressure for 10min. Leave in for another 10 minutes to let the pressure normalize. ⁣

🔹Drain the broth from the farro and set aide. ⁣

🔹Spread asparagus onto a baking sheet.

🔹Add a touch of avocado oil spray to the top and add salt and pepper or other seasoning you like. Roast in a preheated 400 degree oven for approx 15-20 minutes until golden brown.⁣

🔹Allow to cool and transfer to a cutting board and dice into bite sized pieces. ⁣

🔹Dice your roasted red peppers or half the cherry tomatoes.⁣

Assembly:⁣

🔹Set 5 meal prep dishes next to eachother. ⁣

🔹If you are using greens, add a handful to the bottom of each dish.⁣

🔹Add ⅕ of the farro on top of the greens (approx 75 grams)⁣

🔹Add ⅕ of each roasted red peppers, and asparagus to the dish⁣

🔹Top with 3-4oz grilled chicken (or more depending on how much protein you need).⁣

🔹Sprinkle 1oz goat cheese to the top.⁣

🔹Drizzle 2T (or 30g) dressing to the top of each bowl. ⁣

Enjoy this meal hot or cold 🤤⁣
