Farro is an ancient whole grain that is part of the wheat family. It has a nutty, slightly sweet flavor, and a pleasantly chewy texture.

Compared to other whole grains, farro is relatively high in plant-based protein. A 1/3 cup serving has 5 grams!

Farro is also a source of dietary fiber, iron, potassium, and calcium.

Farro holds its shape and the grains don’t stick together when cooked, so it’s an excellent addition to grain salads and soups.

I recommend my reader-favorite fall farro salad with butternut squash and farro cabbage soup.

You can also make delicious, whole grain risotto (or “farrotto”) using farro! Try my butternut squash farro risotto or my mushroom kale farro risotto.
