Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup uncooked farro, rinsed
  • 1 1/2 cups water
Cinnamon Cashew Cream
  • 1 cup raw cashews, soaked, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup water, you can use more to reach your desired thickness
  • 2 Tbsp. maple syrup, you can add more/less to reach desired sweetness
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
Caramelized Peaches
  • 4 peaches, peeled, halved, pitted and cut into chunks
  • 2 tsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/8 tsp. coarse salt
  • 1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 4 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
Topping
  • chopped pecans, walnuts or almonds, if desired
Instructions
  1. Place rinsed farro in a medium saucepan. Add 1 1/2 cups water. The water should cover the grains. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 20 minutes or until just slightly chewy. Remove from heat. Drain off any excess liquid. Set aside.

Cinnamon Cashew Cream
  1. Soak the cashews for at least 2 hours, but as much as up to overnight. After soaking, drain and discard water.

  2. Place the soaked cashews, water, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon and salt in a blender and process for 1-2 minutes. You may add more water for a thinner consistency, if desired.

Caramelized Peaches
  1. In a medium bowl, toss peach chunks, lemon juice, salt and cinnamon. Set aside.

  2. In a medium skillet, melt butter and brown sugar over medium-high heat. Add peach mixture and cook for 5-7 minutes, until caramelized.

Assembling Breakfast Bowl
  1. Place some farro in a bowl, top with some caramelized peaches and a dollop or two of cashew cream. Sprinkle with chopped pecans or your favorite nut, if desired.
