How to Cook Farro

Quick Farro Salad


Farro! I want to tell you all about this amazing grain, which happens to be one of my favorite new ingredients. I'm crazy about all the unique ancient grain varieties popping up on shelves all over the country. From spelt to quinoa to einkorn, there's never been a better time to experiment with whole grains than now.

How many times have you wondered what to serve with a meal, and ended up defaulting to basic white or brown rice? While rice is amazing, I love the possibility of serving a new grain each night of the week. However, I understand that it can be intimidating working with unfamiliar ingredients, so that's why our video team made this helpful video to erase all doubts and concerns about cooking farro. Watch it, and then check out the subsequent recipes featuring farro. I hope you'll try them and fall in love with farro like I have. Happy cooking!
