Raise your hand if you like farro! For those that don’t know what it is, farro is a whole grain that has a nutty taste, similar to brown rice. It is not gluten-free (although at times it is misleadingly marketed as gluten-free) but it does have LESS gluten than other grains. This make farro a good choice for those with a gluten sensitivity but not for those with a gluten allergy.
