  • 1 cup whole grain farro l used Bob's Red Mill
  • 2 cups vegetable stock I used Pacific organic low-sodium or water
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt omit if stock is salty


  1. Follow package instructions to cook the farro, or use these no-soak instructions:
  2. Put the whole grain farro, stock, and salt in a small pot. Bring to a boil. Cover and reduce flame to low. Cook for 40-45 minutes or until the farro is tender but not mushy. For pearled farro, the cooking time is approximately 25 minutes.
