Let's Dish With Linda Lou

Sharing My Recipes, My Life, And The Food Tale Of Two Cities

Farro With Cranberries, Pineapple, And Pistachios

on April 9, 2019

Farro is a food composed of the grains of certain wheat species. If you love barley you’ll definitely love Farro. Farro has a slightly nuttier flavor with a chewy texture that’s really delicious.  If you’re one that doesn’t/can’t eat sweets, for one reason or another, this dish will satisfy all those cravings. The natural sweetness in dried fruit once rehydrated is super intense.

Prepared similar to pasta, Farro is cooked in water until tender, or if you prefer, Al Dente. Farro With Cranberries, Pineapple, And Pistachios give a slightly sweeter take on the many traditional recipes that are available.
