  • Ingredients:
  • 1 cup farro
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/4 cup olive oil, extra virgin

Instructions

Combine farro, salt and water in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, until farro is tender, about 20 to 30 minutes.
