Farro is a type of wheat. It's popular in Italy, especially cooked in a pilaf that highlights its firm, chewy texture.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place 2 cups hot water and porcini mushrooms in a small bowl; cover and let stand 20 minutes or until tender. Drain mushrooms through a fine sieve over a bowl, reserving liquid. Coarsely chop mushrooms.

Step 2

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add porcini mushrooms, cremini mushrooms, onion, and garlic to pan; sauté 6 minutes. Stir in farro; cook 1 minute, stirring occasionally. Add wine; cook 1 minute or until most of liquid evaporates. Add reserved mushroom liquid, thyme, salt, pepper, and broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 45 minutes or until most of liquid evaporates, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in cheese.

I made this for Christmas Eve and it is so good!! better than a Bon Appetit recipe I made with a similar name earlier in the year. I made it ahead of time and that worked just fine. I pretty much followed the recipe as written. I don't know what the picture is of but its not this dish.
