Servings 4 servings


  • 4 large peeled carrots cut crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick coins (about 2 cups chopped)
  • 1/2 red onion sliced into 1/2-inch-thick segments
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper divided
  • 3 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar divided
  • 3 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil divided
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup dry farro
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped canned artichoke hearts patted dry
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 minced garlic clove
  • 1 Tbsp. finely chopped pine nuts or slivered almonds
  • 2 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh parsley plus more for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Arrange carrots and red onion on a rimmed baking sheet lined with foil. Season with salt and 1/4 tsp. of the black pepper.
  • Combine 1 Tbsp. balsamic, 1 Tbsp. oil, and mustard in a small bowl; stir with a whisk. Pour marinade over vegetables; toss to coat. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until lightly browned and tender, stirring once halfway through.
  • While vegetables roast, combine farro and broth in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat and simmer gently, stirring occasionally, until farro is tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Drain any excess liquid and transfer to a large bowl. Combine roasted vegetables with cooked farro. Stir in remaining 2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar and 1 Tbsp. oil.
  • Combine artichokes, lemon zest and juice, garlic, nuts, parsley, and remaining 1 Tbsp. oil and 1/4 tsp. black pepper in a small bowl.
  • Divide vegetable and farro mixture evenly among 4 bowls or plates. Top each serving evenly with artichoke gremolata. Garnish with additional parsley, if desired.
