Farro Risotto by Blue Apron
Eating is not merely a material pleasure. Eating well gives a spectacular joy to life and contributes immensely to goodwill and happy companionship. It is of great importance to the morale. ~Elsa Schiaparelli
Farro, or emmer, is one of the oldest grains on earth and was a staple food item in the Roman Empire. It was originally cultivated in the Middle East, but it is now commonly grown in the mountainous regions of Ethiopia and Italy. High in protein, fiber and iron, the grain's nutty flavor is complemented by a mildly kale-basil pesto and sharp parmesan cheese.
