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.
