This recipe for Greek Shrimp and Farro is perfect for a quick, healthy dinner. Loaded with flavor, it’s easy to make and tastes great warm or cold!
I made this recipe a couple of weeks ago and am excited to share it with you today. It’s one of my favorite kinds of recipes…made with a bunch of random ingredients that I had on hand and turned out absolutely delicious.
Usually when I make dinner recipes like this one, I make them once, let hubby try them to see if they’re blog-worthy and then remake them to take pictures. This time I was so confident that I made it, tasted it and took the pictures right away. After hubby ate it, I verified that it was indeed delicious and he agreed.
So here we are.
I’ve professed my love for shrimp dinners before. They’re tasty and cook so quickly that I always have them in the freezer for nights when I need a quick dinner. I dug around in my pantry and found some farro, which I love, but always seem to forget about making…and added it to the mix along with some other staples like peppers and feta.
I’m not really sure if this should officially be called a Greek recipe but in my world, pretty much anything with feta seems Greek….so we’re going with it.
Here’s how you make it:
