Farro Grains of Discovery from Bob’s Red Mill

YES, I know that farro is an ancient wheat.  Yes, I know that us gluten-free folks can’t eat it.
However, I’m hosting the Grains of Discovery events for Bob’s Red Mill.

So these wheat-based recipes will be on my site, pass them along to your gluten loving friends.

And if you want to make these anyway, substitute quinoa, sorghum or short grain brown rice for the farro. Make sure to cook the quinoa/rice first, then add the dressings.
These Grains of Discovery  are ancient grains that are nutritional powerhouses brought together for you by Bob’s Red Mill, sponsor of these Hangouts on Air.

Each week we will be talking about one of the grains in depth with a panel of talented bloggers who know how feed you right.

 Our panel of Bloggers for Farro includes:

Amy Kritzer What Jew Wanna Eat

Hollie Greene: JoyFoodly

Liz Della Croce: The Lemon Bowl

    I’m thrilled to be talking tales of farro with this amazing group and sharing a fun family recipe! It takes me back to Italy where I first fell in love with cooking!
