Here is my favorite way to cook farro. It takes a little time, so make sure and double or triple to make it batch cooking. It is very simple to reheat!

Ingredients

  • 3 cups vegetable stock You can also use water if you prefer. I like the flavor stock gives it though. If you would rather use a chicken, fish or beef stock, those are great too.
  • 1 cup pearled farro
  • 1 teaspoon salt this is a variable. You can add more or less, depending on preference.

Instructions

  • Bring stock to a boil over medium heat. Add salt and farro. Cover and simmer on low for 25-30 minutes. Remove from heat and let it rest for 5-10 minutes, fluff with fork.
    Serve as desired!
    Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for a week to a week and half. I like to reheat with a little liquid. So, if you are microwaving, place chilled farro in a microwaveable bowl. Add 2 tablespoons of water, cover and microwave on high for for about a minute. If you don't like using microwaves or prefer the cooktop, you can use the same method there. Place farro in pan, add water, cover and simmer until heated.
    Now, sit back and enjoy. Look at how healthy you are!!
