Farro, an ancient grain, hales from Egypt, dating back to the time of the Pharoahs . . . when cats were “king” and worshiped as the deities they are.
Farro is not as complete a protein as Quinoi, but it’s higher in nutritional value than Brown Rice and lower in gluten than Wheat.
Farro is an excellent addition to soups or stews since it doesn’t disintegrate into a mushy mess if left cooking on the stove for a tad too long. Farro can also be used in salads, hot or cold.
The next time you’ve got only 30 minutes to get dinner on the table, you might consider One Pan Farro with Tomatoes (Smitten Kitchen) ~ one bite and Deb’s entire family knew the recipe belonged in their laminated permanent collection.
Quite an endorsement ~ especially since Smitten rhymes with Kitten and we all know how finicky cats can be!
Aah . . . that’s better!
