How long will Moroccan Farro Grain Bowl last for?

Farro grain bowls hold up nicely in your fridge for 4 to 5 days. Cooked farro last for five days, sautéed veggies are good for up to 7, and feta lasts for up to 5 days after opening. Your four Moroccan Farro Grain Bowls should stay fresh in the fridge for closer to 5 days. But, trust us – you don’t need the extra day to enjoy this hearty and exquisite farro grain bowl!

 

Can Moroccan Farro Grain Bowl be frozen?

You sure can! Be sure to pre-freeze the farro on a baking sheet first, or else end up with one big clump of frozen farro that is harder to use. As for freezing the rest of the bowl and dressing, please note that you can freeze cooked kale, but plan on using it within six weeks. Everything else is so easy to prep that you do not need to freeze or even cook the ingredients. We also recommend making the cilantro dressing fresh.
