    Chewy farro combines with the typical ingredients for a Greek salad for a yummy picnic dish or packed lunch. Instead of farro you could use wholegrain spelt or wheatberries.

    This recipe is a spin on a classic Italian farro and cannellini bean soup - I like to add lots of veg including courgette, carrots, celery, leeks and kale.

    A truly Italian autumn soup made of farro (aka pearl spelt), porcini mushrooms and chestnuts. It also calls for speck, a cured meat typical of Alto Adige and Austria. But you can easily replace it with prosciutto or bacon if you can't find it.

    A warming and hearty soup that's full of flavour and really fills you up thanks to the farro, which is an ancient form of wheat. I took inspiration from an Italian recipe on this site, tweaking substantially to fit what I had to hand. The result was delicious!

    The nutty flavour of farro grains balances with the salty Parmesan and tart cranberries in this tasty salad. Plan ahead, as the farro needs to soak overnight. It's a lovely salad for picnics.

    This Greek-style salad made with farro, an ancient grain, is a nice alternative to pasta salad. Farro doesn't get as soggy and holds the dressing very well. This is great served with grilled lamb or chicken. Add black olives or fresh herbs if you like!
