    Our Organic Farro has a nutty flavour with a hint of cinnamon and a chewy texture perfect for salads, soups, and bowls. Like most grains, it makes a good base for dishes that layer flavours, such as protein bowls, as it takes on the taste of a dressing or sauce.

    Our Organic Farro is grown in Italy and is farro medio (emmer). It grows best in barren, high-altitude terrain and is almost always grown without chemical pesticides or fertilizers.

    For anyone on a plant based diet, Farro is a great source of protein, even giving Quinoa a run for its money. Farro is also rich in fibre, iron, magnesium and vitamins A, B, C and E.

  • Directions

    Cooking tip: You need to rinse farro before cooking it. It has a powdery coating on it that is best removed before cooking. Simply place your pre-measured farro into a fine-mesh strainer and rinse under running water for a minute.

    Instant Pot Directions
    To make Farro with an Instant Pot, you will add the water, and the Farro. There are 2 cups of water to 1 cup of Farro. Close the lid and turn the valve to a sealing position. Press the “Manual” button and set the time to 10 minutes on High pressure.

    When it has finished cooking, allow your Instant Pot to sit for 10 minutes. Then use the steam release handle to “venting” and allow any additional pressure to be released. Remove the lid.

    Stovetop Directions

    1. In a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine Farro and water and bring to a boil.
    2. Place the lid on and reduce to medium-low heat. Cook for 30-35 minutes.
    3. There will likely be extra water; strain before serving.
