Farro Pasta
Coming from a Barese family, eating broccoli rabe is non-negiotable — it's a staple. In my grandmother's town of Adelfia in Bari, Italy, the cousin of spinach and the sister to broccoli was on the table quite often. What wasn't on the table ever? Farro. Though an Italian grain, it never existed in our lives until I introduced it recently. Now, when blended with the familiar verde, hearty crumbed walnuts, and sharp Parmagiano, it is welcomed with a smile.

Spinach and ricotta pasta
I can't lie — when I set out to make this recipe, I wasn't exactly sure what I was doing or how it would turn out. And I'll tell you this, it came out spectacularly. Granted, this is a simple dish, but the nuttiness of the farro, cooled down, paired wonderfully with ribbons of spinach and the creaminess of the cheese. Lemon zest added a pleasant tang and brightness. If you like, you could easily add in some avocado as well...

Farro with Red Kuri Squash and Leeks
You might not be familiar with red kuri squash, which looks like a mini pumpkin (it's about 4-5 inches in diameter) and which is undoubtedly my favorite type of winter squash. In French red kuri squash is called potimarron, translating to something like "chestnut pumpkin," and this name more aptly describes the deep and chestnutty flavor red kuri squash develops when cooked. Made with silky leeks and nutty farro, this is a healthy recipe that is sure to please almost any palate. Click here to see 10 Vegetarian Recipes.

Spicy Tomato Soup with Harissa and Farro
Harissa is a spicy Tunisian chile paste often used in North African cooking. Here, a milder version spices up a tomato soup made with fresh vegetable stock, and a good amount of farro is thrown in for good measure, making this a light, nutritious meal. If you don't have access to farro, pearled barley would make a decent substitute. See all farro recipes.
