Farro is a delicious (and healthy!) Italian grain. It has a firm, yet chewy texture when cooked. You can use it in soups, salads, risottos, or even treat it like pasta and add a sauce to it. Here are some delicious food52 farro dishes that I have tried and loved: http://www.food52.com/recipes..., http://www.food52.com/recipes...

This is my favorite question ever! Ok, you can do SO many things with farro. A summer salad with good italian canned tuna (oil-packed), cherry tomatos, peppers, and basil is one picnic favorite. Or, warm farro sautéed with broccoli and pepperoncino. Or! Treat it like arborio rice and make, what's called, farrotto (similar to risotto, but nuttier). Or just boil it and douse it in olive oil and salt. There are cakes and cookies and pastas and salads ... anything that uses flour can often call for farro, my all-time favorite grain.
