Spring is in the Air

No it’s not. It’s frigid out. Even though the crocuses are in bloom and the tulips and daffodils are starting to poke out of the ground, winter refuses to leave. Nonetheless, because I believe in the power of positive thinking I made a downright springy farro “risotto” with peas and spring herbs (chives, tarragon, and basil) for dinner tonight. What’s more with a little weekend prep this can be a 30 minute weeknight meal. Sous Vide the pork (and then just reheat it in the sous vide machine the day you want to eat it). Boil the farro (in stock if you have some) on the weekend as well. When you’re ready to eat sautee some shallots or scallions in butter, add the peas and cook until just short of tender crisp, throw in some minced garlic and your cooked farro and heat until warm. Finish with herbs, parmesean cheese, and a splash of cream. Sear the pork chops. Eat dinner.
