INSTRUCTIONS

1
Cook the farro
Add the farro to a small saucepan and cover with cold water (the water should be at least 1 inch over the farro). 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 apple sage sausage from the wrapper and thinly slice into rounds. Place a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat with 1 tbsp olive oil. Add the 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
Peel and mince the shallot. Peel and mince the garlic. Trim, deseed and mince the mini sweet peppers. Return the skillet to medium-high heat with 2 tbsp olive oil. Add the minced shallot, just half the minced garlic, and a pinch of salt and pepper and cook until the shallot is softened, about 2 to 3 minutes.
4
Finish the skillet
Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Add the chickpeas, cooked farro, and diced peppers to the skillet and season with salt and pepper and toss well. Cook until the farro is crispy in places, about 3 to 4 minutes.
5
Prepare the cucumber salad
Chop the dill fronds. Thinly slice the cucumber. Halve the lemon. Combine the chopped dill, sliced cucumber, yogurt, remaining minced garlic, juice from just half the lemon, and a pinch of salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Toss the tzatziki cucumber salad.
6
Serve
Cut the remaining lemon into wedges. Top the skillet with the apple sage sausage and cook until hot. Divide the Mediterranean skillet between plates and serve with the tzatziki cucumber salad and lemon wedges. Enjoy!
