Farro is a grain with a nutty flavor similar to brown rice. In fact, it is often used as a substitute for pasta or rice. Unlike some other grains (quinoa, for example), farro is not gluten-free.

1/4 cup honey

 

 

Directions:

  1. Bring water and salt to a boil.
  2. Whisk in grains.
  3. Return to a boil.
  4. Reduce heat to low.
  5. Simmer, stirring often, for 35 to 40 minutes.
  6. Top with skim milk, banana, walnuts, cranberries, and honey.
  7. Serve immediately.
