Farro

Farro is one of those grains I never really heard of until recently and I can't understand why! Its delicious, super nutritious, and incredibly versatile. You can use it in soups in place of barley, as a pasta base in place of orzo or risotto rice or other small pastas, you can toss it into salads, or replace farro in any rice dish.
