Farro Perlato Cereal

Recipe by  

"Farro perlato is the Italian word for emmer wheat. It is a wheat grain, actually a kernel that resembles barley from Popola di Foligno in the heart of Umbria. I have been looking for ways to incorporate this grain that has lots of fiber and protein into our meals. Enjoy this creation!"

The inital flavor of the sweet vanilla milk and nutty farro is great, then it goes very bland. I added a sprinkle of cinnamon and a drizzle of maple syrup to my bowl after eating a few spoonfuls of the original recipe and it's better. Farro is such a thick, hearty grain, it seems like it would be hard to flavor it. Maybe if it was cooked like rice pudding it would have more sweetness and flavor. Thank you.
