"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!"

  1. Place farro in a bowl and cover with several inches of cool water; let stand in refrigerator for 8 hours to overnight. Drain.
  2. Place farro in a saucepan and cover with water; stir in a pinch of salt and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain.
  3. Mix milk, sugar, vanilla bean with seeds, and a pinch of salt together in a saucepan. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until sugar is dissolved and milk is warm, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove vanilla bean and add farro to milk mixture. Cook and stir until heated through, about 5 minutes.


  • Editor's Note:
  • If you can't find farro, look for spelt or wheat berries, which are available in the health food section of some markets.
