Method

  1. Cook the farro according to the packet instructions, then drain in a colander and leave to cool.
  2. Cut the cauliflower into florets, then cook in a pan of boiling salted water until just soft. Drain in a colander and leave to cool.
  3. Heat a griddle pan until hot. Drizzle the asparagus with a little oil and cook on the pan until lightly charred and cooked through. Leave to cool.
  4. Boil the eggs in a pan of boiling water for around 6 minutes to hard-boil, then peel and halve.
  5. For the herb dressing, pick and chop the dill and parsley, chop the chives, then combine with the oil and vinegar, and season generously with sea salt and black pepper.
  6. Toast the pine nuts in a dry frying pan.
  7. In a serving bowl, toss the farro, cauliflower, asparagus, pine nuts, raisins and leaves with the dressing. Serve with the eggs on the side.

Tips

Farro is a whole spelt grain, similar to pearl barley, or a cross between rice and couscous. Find it in supermarkets or health food shops.
