Mushroom Farro with Spinach

I love make farro risotto and the heartiness of the grain makes it so that it can be made ahead. This version I really liked with a little dill havarti, I used that cause it was in the fridge but it worked so well, I have to recommend it.


Farro Risotto with Mushrooms and Pecorino

Using farro to make a risotto makes the dish healthier, heartier and able to withstand being served a little later. It is still best served soon after cooking, but it does reheat well if you would like to make ahead and once you start making risotto with farro you won't want to go back to arborio rice.


Beet Farro Risotto

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.
