|Farro, Kale and Mushroom|
One of my favorite grains is farro, a grain from a species of wheat with Italian origins. My guess is it will be one of the trendy foods of 2014, as it's been popular on restaurant menus all around town.
It has a nutty and chewy texture with a mild taste. It is easy to cook by simmering in salted water and draining when done. I sauteed Dino Kale with oyster mushrooms in olive oil then tossed in the farro. Quick, easy and delicious.
