ABOUT

Farro is an ancient whole grain wheat with a nutty flavor and firm, chewy texture ideal for soups, salads and sides. We pearl these high-quality, light brown cereal grains to remove part of the outer bran for quicker cooking. Farro is a rich source of fiber and nutrients such as vitamin B3 and zinc.

  • Use Farro in soups, stews, salads and side dishes
  • Use as a substitute for barley, or for a healthier version of risotto
  • Toss cooled, cooked Farro with fresh ricotta and honey, sprinkle with cinnamon

BASIC PREP

Add 1 cup of Farro to 2-1/2 cups of water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Skim water occasionally. Cook for 25 minutes. Drain any excess water. Yields 3 cups cooked.
