Farro Chirashi-Sushi

Source: Culinary Institute of America

This vegetarian sushi variation substitutes farro for rice but features the same flavor profile as popular sushi rolls. Chef Feldman mixes the farro with rice-wine vinegar and sugar, then adds cucumber, carrots, scallions, edamame, daikon, kale chips and egg. The meal-in-a-bowl is a colorful mix of crunchy textures and bright flavors.
