Zucchini with black beans, fire roasted tomatoes and pearled farro

It is super yummy. I tried a new grain called farro and really enjoy the easy of it. The texture was like a cross between a risotto and a rice. The flavors were very southwestern. Combine zucchini with black beans, fire roasted tomatoes and pearled farro together and it was a simple yet different meal that was new and fresh. I'll be making this more again. CRG approved.
