INGREDIENT TIP: Farro is an ancient, minimally processed, and nutritious whole grain that contains 7 grams of protein per serving. Although not gluten-free, farro has significantly less gluten than wheat. This fiber-rich whole grain has a nice chewy texture and nutty taste. It is now easy to find in the rice section of most grocery stores.
