Maybe I have been living under a rock but I tried farro for the first time over the weekend and totally LOVE it!!
After the Junior League event Saturday night we went to 300 East for dinner and I ordered the farro saute trying to keep it healthy.
I really had no idea what it was but figured it would be good and OMG it was!!
It was farro with sauteed kale, zucchini, tomatoes, and topped with a chicken breast.
It wasn't until the next day when eating my leftovers for lunch that I looked closer at the actual farro.
(it was dark in the restaurant)
It looks like oatmeal but it's not.
It's an ancient Italian grain.
I immediately googled farro and found all kinds or recipes that I plan on recreating at home.
Then guess what?!
I couldn't believe it!
Is farro the new thing or am I just behind the times??
Now, the question is.
Where in the world do I buy farro?
I'm thinking Trader Joe's?
Ideas, thoughts, recipes?
Have you tried farro?
Let me know!
