Why I Love This Recipe

I adapted this recipe from Nancy Harmon Jenkins cookbook Cucina Del Sole last night for dinner along with roast turkey breast and a green salad with fresh herbs. Very nurturing!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 1/2 C. farro
sea salt
1 small red onion, sliced thinly
1 med. tomato chopped or a handful of cherry tomatoes halved
1/2 C. coarsely chopped fennel (be generous)
1/4 C. Italian parsley chopped coarsely
1/4 C. thinly sliced celery
2 jalapeños seeded and minced
zest of 1/2 lemon (organic)
3-4 T. extra-virgin olive oil
2 T. fresh lemon juice or to taste(I used more than called for)


Rinse the farro under running water,drain and transfer to a pan.

Cover with water an inch over the grain.

Add a good pinch of salt.

Bring to a simmer, cover and cook for 40-60 minutes or until the farro is tender but al dente.

Drain and transfer to serving bowl.

Add the vegetables and parsley.


Dress with the oil and lemon juice and let sit so the flavors can get to know each other.
