This savory garlic farro recipe is a perfect alternative to rice or potatoes—simple to make, nutty and delicious!
Last Thursday was busy, maybe a little busier than normal even.
One of those days where all of a sudden it’s after six o’clock and thoughts about dinner aren’t even a blip on the horizon.
My daughter, who spent all evening outside until the lights came on, stopped playing with her friends long enough to ask for chicken noodle soup for dinner.
Since my son was at my folks’ for the night, and my husband was busy coaching a lacrosse game (they won!), it was just us girls.
And you know what?
Chicken soup with buttered saltine crackers sounded perfect to me.
But a couple nights ago, when I had a little more foresight, we tried farro for the first time.
It’s nothing new and crazy.
With a texture similar to a cross between Israeli couscous and brown rice, and with a delicate, nutty flavor, it’s also quite versatile!
Even prepared simply, we found it quite delicious.
