How to prepare Farro Grains

  • In a non-stick pan with lid (like this one on Amazon), place farro grains, water and bouillon cube, bring to a boil on your stove top, then let simmer until cooked (usually around 30 min on my stove).
  • Once cooked, drain water and set aside. Or let cool, then put in air-tight container and store in fridge for up to 3 days or use immediately.
