A note about serious food allergies

This meal combines two unique and "exciting" ingredients that you might not be familiar with. Farro, a rice-shaped grain full of fiber and protein, and burrata, a version of mozzarella that's hard on the outside, soft on the inside add bulk and flavor to this combination of butternut squash and kale. Each bite brings the creamy, and the grainy, in perfect balance. You'll be getting familiar with the new real quick.
