DEFINE foods: Farro Salad w Roasted Grapes & Pomegranate

Just in time for the Holidays! This is a wonderful side dish for your festive table.  Farro is an ancient strain of hard wheat, but a plant and grain all its own. A grain of farro looks and tastes somewhat like a lighter brown rice and is often confused with spelt. It has a complex, nutty taste with undertones of oats and barley. Rich in fiber, magnesium and vitamins A, B, C and E,  farro is so easily digested and so low in gluten, it can often be eaten by people who are normally gluten-intolerant.

Healthy and hearty, high in fiber and protein, easy to cook and digest…farro is the perfect winter grain. Simply cook and toss with fresh herbs and good olive oil or use it in various recipes from soups to salads to mains and sides. I made this dish for our Thanksgiving family potluck at DEFINE recently.
