Farro is amazingly easy to cook on the stove, in fact, it's one of the quickest whole grains to prepare. All you need is a pot, water, and some farro. It will be ready to eat in less than 20 minutes!


  • 1 cup farro
  • water


  • Bring a pot of water to a boil on the stove over high heat. Just like pasta, farro doesn't require a certain amount of water, so just fill the pot up at least 3 cups of water. You'll want enough to cover all the grains.
  • Rinse your farro under cold water. This removes any dust or extra starch that has settled on the grains in storage. Add rinsed farro to the boiling water, and turn the heat down to a gentle boil. You do not need to cover the pot.
  • Let the farro boil for 15-20 minutes.*  The grains will always be a little chewy,, but are done when they are mostly tender.
  • Drain the water and rinse the farro under cool water. This will stop the cooking process of your grains, and keep them from getting mushy.
  • Serve and enjoy!
