Thinking I've fallen in love, with this grain that is. I made this as directed with only one small change, added some chopped fresh mushrooms. So pretty, lite and healthy, made for a great lunch, so many options with this recipe, it's already become one of my favs
When I came to post this recipe I made from my package of farro (Nature's Earthly Choice Pearled Italian Farro) and found it posted here, but credited to Giada de Laurentiis, I was really quite surprised! It's exactly the same, but it's obvious someone is not getting the credit they deserve, whoever it is! That should definitely be straightened out. At any rate, it's definitely a simple, easy recipe with great flavor and I highly recommend it. We had it with eggplants stuffed with lamb and pine nuts from the "Jerusalam" cookbook.
I added edamame to mine. Hubby and I enjoyed it quite a bit, would try it again.
This is good!! I used this recipe along with the recipe on the back of my farro package to make this salad so I put in some black olives and capers! Farro is really good and gets soft when soaked and boiled. I will use this tasty ingredient again, thanks!!!
i've made this salad a couple times, and it is very fresh and good...i used barley instead of farro because the italian specialty store near my house did not have any farro. i reccomend this recipe for a hot summer day....serve it cool
