  • ¾ cup uncooked farro
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 1 medium sized avocado halved, pitted and sliced
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • fresh cracked black pepper
  • 3 tablespoon whole milk Greek Yogurt


Instant Pot Cooking Instructions for Farro and Eggs

  • Put the farro along with one cup of water to the instant pot. Pop on the lid and seal the valve. Set to manual mode for 12 minutes. Quick pressure release once complete. Once pressure has been released, remove the farro from the pot and set aside.
  • Put one cup of water into the bottom of the pot. Add the trivet and 4 eggs on top of the trivet. Set to steam for 3 minutes. Quick pressure release once complete and immediately place the eggs in a bowl if cold water to halt cooking.

Stove Top Cooking Instructions for Farro and Eggs

  • Bring a large saucepan filled water to a boil. Add farro; reduce heat to medium and simmer 20 minutes or until slightly chewy. Drain.
  • Bring a small saucepan of water to a boil. Add cold eggs; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 6 minutes. Place eggs in a bowl of ice water; let stand 6 minutes or until completely cool. Drain and peel.

Prepare the Rest of the Bowl

  • Heat oil in a small skillet over medium. Add the cumin and paprika and cook for 30 seconds, stirring constantly. 
  • Add the cooked farro to the spice mixture and cook until heated through. Remove and serve into 2 bowls. Keep the heat going in the skillet, throw in the spinach and cook until just wilted. 
  • Add the spinach to the bowls along with the eggs (carefully cut in half), half an avocado and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Top with a generous dollop of Greek yogurt and serve. I also like to add a sprinkle of Everything But The Bagel seasoning.
