(TIP: You can save duck fat for other creations, if desired.)


Meanwhile, peel, then cut onion into 1/4-inch slices. Thinly slice mushrooms. Roughly chop spinach.

Cook veggies

When farro is almost done, heat the pan with reserved duck fat over medium-high. When hot, add onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened slightly, 2-3 min. Add mushrooms.
