The low down:

Farro originates from the fertile crescent but is now grown throughout the Mediterranean. It cooks like rice- two cups water to one cup farro. It has more nutrients than quinoa. And is exotic like couscous.

Despite its ancient origins, it has recently become a very popular food. It is filling, easy to cook, and very high in nutrients. How high? See for yourself.
