Steak with Farro and Chickpea Salad

It's Friday night and the fridge is calling for something a little more exciting than takeout. Enter this hearty steak, farro & chickpea salad - a flavor and protein powerhouse that comes together in under 30 minutes!

We're talking juicy, pan-seared rib eye steak resting on a bed of farro (an ancient grain that adds a delightful nutty bite), with pops of freshness from cherry tomatoes, salty crumbles of blue cheese, and briny olives. Crispy chickpeas, tossed in those glorious steak drippings, add an extra layer of texture and savory goodness.

This salad is the perfect balance of hearty and light, making it a fantastic weeknight dinner!

I made the farro this morning. 

The steaks were pan-fried for 4 minutes per side. Perfect medium rare. While the steaks were resting I fried the chickpeas in the same pan with the steak juices.

The salad was a simple mix of baby red leaf lettuce, blue cheese, olives, and cherry tomatoes.
