Add farro to the list of foods I have never cooked before moving to Italy.
To be honest, I don't think I ever ate farro until I moved here.
I love barley. I know mushrooms and barley are a good flavor combination.
I checked my cookbooks and the internet for a farro/mushroom recipe. I found one on a favorite cooking blog, Food52
The recipe and a very nice photo are HERE.
The only modification I made was to add less than 6 tablespoons of olive oil at the end.
This salad was DELICIOUS. The next day I ate it cold and it was yummy that way as well.
I'm definitely added farro to my must-have-it-in-my-pantry-at-all-times list.
