Fresh Thyme Organic Farro & Quinoa with Broccoli & Feta Review

Fresh Thyme Organic Farro & Quinoa with Broccoli & Feta

A lot of the wheats and grains we eat became the foods they are today through selective breeding. That’s not the case for ancient grains. These foods have been around for thousands of years and have barely changed at all. If you’d like to try these grains — or if you’re just feeling hungry — Fresh Thyme Organic Farro & Quinoa with Broccoli & Feta is packed with all the hearty grains you need.

Fresh Thyme is a natural grocery chain with stores across the midwest. While Fresh Thyme describes themselves as a farmer’s market, they also have a robust frozen food section! If you have a Fresh Thyme in your area, we strongly suggest checking their products out.

The box contains microwave instructions for this frozen dish, but we had time and tinfoil on our hands, so we decided to heat it in the oven. The process isn’t too challenging. Just preheat your oven, cover the food with aluminum foil, and toss it in until it’s ready to eat. It took us 25 minutes to cook this dish through.

The farro and quinoa mixture isn’t super flavorful, but it has a nice texture to it, while the broccoli adds a nice crunch. The ingredient that really shines here is the organic feta cheese. It’s got a strong scent — it’s the first thing you’ll smell when you take this out of the oven — but it’s also bursting with flavor. The slightly sour, creamy taste really brings everything together.

This may be a frozen dish, but it’s packed with important nutrients. Because it’s made with both farro and quinoa, it’s pretty high in protein; there are 14 grams per serving. It’s also a great source of fiber, calcium, potassium, and even vitamin D! If you’re trying to eat healthier foods, but can’t muster up the energy to cook from scratch, this is an excellent option.

The Fresh Thyme Organic Farro & Quinoa with Broccoli & Feta is a great option even if you’re iffy on the concept of “ancient grains.” It’s easy to make, especially if you just toss this in the microwave instead of cooking it in the oven. It’s bursting with nutrients, including hard-to-find nutrients like vitamin D. If you have a Fresh Thyme near you, you’ll definitely want to give this healthy dish a try.
