Additions & Substitutions:

  • Puffed Farro – This dish tastes best with the addition of Puffed Farro due to the combination of crunchy and soft textures. However, puffed farro takes extra time. Combine 1/4 cup farro, 2 cups water and salt in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook until farro is overcooked, about one hour. Drain farro and rinse in cold water. Spread out on a lined sheet pan in a single layer so the grains don’t touch. If you have a convection oven, dehydrate the farro for three hours at 150°F. If not, set aside in a warm place overnight and then flash fry in oil at 425°F. When it puffs, remove immediately, season with salt, and drain. Cool until crispy
