Loving this chickpea salad right now. (Note: I always end up cooking the onions for closer to 15 minutes than 8.)
Liked - but did not love - this farro salad.
Attempted this approach to having pre-prepared shredded beef on hand, with only moderate success (there may have been a truly disgusting attempt at making beef-barley soup in the pressure cooker).
Trying to take more of a 'make-ahead' approach in general, I made carrot-coconut soup, which we both liked a lot.
I currently have a big batch of farro cooling, as suggested in this post.
