Making Farro With Bob's Red Mill

 I like trying new healthy food and I discovered a new whole grain called Farro. Bob's Red Mill sent me a package to try. This mother wheat comes from ancient Rome. Farro was the main source of nourishment back then and is still grown by Tuscan farmers.
Farro is similar to taste and looks to barley. It is also high in protein and fiber.

Cooking Farro is also easy but takes about 30-40 minutes. I used my cooked Farro as a base for my beans, salsa, cheese, and avocado.


1 cup Bob's Red Mill  Farro
2 cups water
1/2 teaspoon salt
Bring the Farro, water, and salt to boil in a sauce pan. Cover and reduce to a simmer. Cook for 30 - 40 minutes or until all liquid is absorbed.

You can use the wonderful Farro in dishes you would use rice or barley in. It is also great for a hot cereal with cheese or sugar on it. I like mine with beans, salsa, cheese, and avocado. Yum!
