INSTRUCTIONS

1
Cook the farro

Add the farro to a small saucepan and cover with at least 1 inch cold water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and cook until the grains are tender, about 15 to 18 minutes. Drain any excess water.

2
Crisp the sausage

Remove the sausage from the plastic wrapper and thinly slice into rounds. Place a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat with 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) olive oil. Add the sliced sausage and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned and crispy, about 5 to 6 minutes. Transfer the crispy sausage to a plate.

3
Start the skillet

Wipe the mushrooms with a damp towel to clean, and slice. Peel and mince the shallot. Mince the garlic. Dice the apple. Return the skillet to medium-high heat with 2 tbsp (4 tbsp) olive oil. Add the sliced mushrooms and cook until softened, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add the minced shallot, minced garlic, diced apple, and a pinch of salt and pepper to the skillet and cook, tossing occasionally, until the apple is caramelized in places, about 4 to 6 minutes.

4
Finish the skillet

Add the balsamic vinegar to the skillet and cook until it evaporates, about 30 seconds. Add the cooked farro, spinach, and French mustard & herb blend and toss well. Cook until the spinach is wilted, about 3 to 4 minutes.

5
Serve

Top the skillet with the crispy sausage. Divide the apple & herbed sausage skillet between plates. Enjoy!
