Bobs Red Mill Organic Farro - 24 Oz.Add whole grains to your diet and take a culinary voyage to the Mediterranean with farro.
It originated in the Fertile Crescent, and some say farro is the original ancestor of all other wheat species—the mother of all wheat.
Today this ancient Old World grain is still highly regarded in Italy, where it has been grown for generations by Tuscan farmers and is featured in many traditional dishes.
Although not gluten free, organic farro grains are a good source of iron and plant-based protein.
Its also easy to digest, allowing your body to readily absorb the nutrients.
Our organic farro grains are very lightly scratched, as is traditional, to allow for a faster cooking time and to encourage the release of their starches during cooking.
Farro is easy to prepare, but exotic enough to impress your friends and family.
Try your hand at farrotto, an alternative to traditional risotto. Farro is also a great alternative to a summer pasta salad.
Drizzle it with extra-virgin olive oil and toss with seasonal vegetables and fresh herbs.
A classic Mediterranean recipe combines tomatoes, mozzarella, toasted pine nuts and pesto with cooked farro for a perfect lunch.
For something fresh, you can add cucumber, feta cheese and grape tomatoes with a red wine vinegar and lemon dressing.
For a fall dish, farro is great with beets and butternut squash roasted on a baking sheet.
You can also mix cooked farro with pasta, butter, olive oil and salt for a fantastic side dish alongside your main protein.
Or, make a farro salad: drizzle it with extra-virgin olive oil and toss with seasonal vegetables and fresh herbs.
