When shopping for farro, look for “semipearled,” or “semiperlato,” which means that it has been partially polished to remove some of its hull. It will cook more quickly but still retain some whole-grain benefits.

  • 55


  • 1 1/4 cups semipearled farro
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • 1/2 cup pine nuts
  • 1/4 cup olive oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 jar artichoke hearts (not marinated)
  • 6 Tbs. red wine vinegar
  • 3 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped red onion, rinsed and thoroughly
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste


Pick over the farro, discarding any stones or grit. Rinse thoroughly under cold running water and drain. In a saucepan over high heat, combine the farro, water and a generous pinch of salt and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover and simmer gently until all of the water has been absorbed and the grains are tender, 25 to 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small, dry fry pan over medium heat, toast the pine nuts, stirring often, just until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Be careful not to let them burn. Immediately pour onto a plate to cool. Set aside.

Drain the sun-dried tomatoes, reserving the oil to use in place of some of the olive oil, if you like. Cut the tomatoes into julienne. Drain the artichokes, rinse and drain again. Cut into quarters.

In a large bowl, whisk together the vinegar and olive oil (or a mixture of the tomato oil and olive oil). Add the farro, tomatoes, artichoke hearts, onion, parsley and pine nuts and toss gently to mix and coat well. Season generously with salt and pepper. Serve immediately. Serves 4 to 6.
