How do I cook faro?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
It can be cooked a multitude of way: steamed like rice, boiled like pasta, pilaf'd, or risotto'd. Give it a little toast, before cooking to unlock its depth of flavor.
I've always boiled it like pasta, making sure to salt the water well. It then usually simmers for anywhere from 20-30 minutes. You can also boil it in chicken stock for more flavor.

Well played. You deserve a cookie.
Our salads (and cheese plates and sandwiches) have never been happier.
