I got the idea for this recipe when I saw one for a beet risotto. I figured using the borscht would be easier and have the same effect and it exceeded my expectations. Something about this dish was just perfect, we literally could not get enough. You can make this with Arborio rice if desired, but I like the healthfulness and flavor of the farro. It makes enough for 2 main courses or 4 to 6 as a side dish.

 

Artichoke and Sun Dried Tomato Farroto

A whole grain alternative to the classic risotto. This uses Farro and the results are still creamy and delicious. If you don't like artichokes and tomatoes go ahead and use any vegetables you like.
