Organic Pearled Farro

Order now and we'll ship tomorrow.

Our Organic Pearled Farro (pronounced FAHR-oh) is a nutritious and delicious addition to your diet. It is the quickest-cooking farro available. Farro fed the Roman Legions, was used as money during the height of the Roman Empire, and Farro kernels were even found in Egyptian tombs! So pharaohs cherished farro too (pun intended).

How to Cook Pearled Farro

Use 3 parts liquid to 1 part farro. Bring water or broth to a rolling boil, and then reduce the heat to medium-low. Add the farro and let it cook for 20 minutes. For a chewy texture, cook for less time. For a mushy texture, cook longer.

What’s Farro Like?

Pearled farro is similar to a lighter brown rice and has a complex, nutty taste with oat and barley undertones. However, farro lacks the heaviness of many whole-wheat grains and tastes more elegantly. Farro behaves much like risotto, but doesn’t become gummy. Instead, it retains its tender, distinct bite, even if it sits awhile after cooking.

Health Benefits of Farro

Farro is rich in fiber, protein, iron, magnesium, and vitamin B, and is almost always grown without chemical pesticides or fertilizers. With 4 grams of protein per serving, it’s a great plant-based protein source for vegans and vegetarians. Because it is so easily digested and low in gluten, farro can often be eaten by people who are normally gluten-intolerant.

Our Registered Dietitian’s Top Pick

Our Registered Dietitian and Health Nut likes to use this ancient grain especially for salads. For a quick side dish, cook farro and then toss it with your favorite Italian dressing and add diced cucumbers and diced tomatoes. To make it more like a meal, add in diced grilled chicken or tofu.

More Serving Tips
