Savory Garlic Farro

Prep: 5 minutes | Cook: 30 minutes | Serves: 4-6


1 9.1oz box Tuscan Fields Farro Perlato

1 garlic clove, smashed

3 cups chicken broth

2 tablespoons olive oil


Warm the olive oil and garlic in a medium sauce pan over medium heat for 2 minutes. Add the Tuscan Fields Farro Perlato, and let it toast in the olive oil - stirring often - until it starts to look golden, about 5 minutes. Add the chicken broth all at one, increase the heat to high and bring it to a boil.

Cover the pot with a tight fitting lid, and reduce the heat to medium-low (or whatever keeps it at a light boil). Let the farro simmer for 18 minutes, then remove it from heat and let the it sit for another 5 minutes before taking the lid off.

Fluff the farro with a fork, and serve it hot.
