Chef's Notes

  • Such a deliciously nutrient dense dish thanks to the farro, squash, cranberries, and pecans.
  • Try chopping your pecans or slicing your red onions in the Vitamix Food Processor. If desired, the raw onion taste can be lessened by placing sliced onions in ice water for 10-15 minutes.
