Stovetop Farro

Notes

Recipe Notes

  • For more flavor, cook with broth instead of water.
  • Use farro in any recipe that calls for brown rice or quinoa. Add to soups, grain bowls, or use instead of pasta in pasta salads.
  • For less cooking time, cover farro with water and soak in the refrigerator for 8 or more hours. Add soaked farro to 3 cups boiling water or broth, reduce heat to low and cook for about 10 minutes. Drain extra water and serve.
