Today I am thrilled to be able to share this wonderful recipe with you! I created this recipe for the awesome editors of Eternity Watch Magazine to be featured in their Spring Issue. It was such a please and honor to do so, Jenny and Vaughn are amazing people and so much fun to work with. If you haven’t had a chance to check out this magazine, I suggest you do so right away!

I absolutely love this recipe! It is whole-foods, plant-based and so delicious. I packed in as many fresh, in-season spring produce I could think of – I like my salads fully loaded. =) And if you are a salad lover like me, you with love this recipe as much as I do.
If you haven’t tried Farro yet, you are missing out on a wonderfully nutritious grain. It’s often used as a substitute for pasta or rice, farro is a grain with a nutty flavor similar to brown rice. It is rich in fiber, magnesium and vitamins A, B, C, and E.

I am definitely going to showcase this awesome grain in upcoming recipes. I decided to use Farro in this recipe because I thought it would be a nice change from using Quinoa. I love Quinoa, but I wanted something new for these fritters. Farro is not gluten-free. But if you are gluten-free and want to try this recipe, you can substitute the Farro for quinoa and sub the whole-wheat flour and panko with gluten-free options.
Eternity Watch Magazine was kind enough to give me the PDF version of my recipe straight out of the magazine to share with you! Click on the link below to download the PDF.
Some other blog news. I currently had all my recipes and post transferred over from Virtually Vegan Mama to Pure Thyme. Unfortunately, some images did not transfer over. =( So, please bear with me while I fix all the glitches. You guys rock!
Have a great day and enjoy this recipe!
