"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.
