Grain bowls make a quick and healthy dinner that can be customized anyway you love! This recipe utilizes a base of farro, an ancient grain bursting with protein, antioxidants, and a nutty flavor. The rich flavor of farro is brightened by homemade dressing of lemon, garlic, and fresh tarragon before it’s topped with fresh veggies straight from the grill.
