Fantastic Farro / Farro Fantastico

Savory, not sweet is Mary Ann's Farro Cake. Fiber-packed, whole-grain cooked farro mixed with parsley, sage no rosemary, sorry and thyme makes for an herb-infused treat. This versatile grain makes a perfect base for Mary Ann's familiar favorite, Farro Salad; filled with sweet red peppers, diced fennel, tangy capers, and sliced mushrooms.
