Farro... F-A-R-R-O

On the way home from dinner one evening...

Hubs: "Do you need to stop anywhere before home?"
Me: "Yeah. Supermarket. I need to get farro."
Hubs: "What?"
Me: "Farro."
Hubs: "What?"
Me: "Farro!"
Hubs: "I can't tell if you're making this up."
Me: "I'm not! It's farro!!! F-A-R-R-O! Farro!"
Hubs: "I have no idea what you're talking about."

And here's what I did with the farro. (Please note that I'm a pretty lousy food stylist... look at all those stray bits... yeesh.) I made a warm salad with sauteed broccoli rabe and diced ham, then threw a couple of fried eggs on top. I didn't make a dressing because I kept the yolks runny so that was more than enough yummy goodness over the farro.

So now the hubs knows what farro is and won't think I'm playing a trick when I put it on the shopping list. He might get it wrong and buy something completely different, but at least he knows I'm not making shit up.

In his defense, the whole time I was wondering what you were going to cook with an old west card game. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faro_%28card_game%29)

Lol. I have some in the cupboard that I haven't used yet because I tend to have folks around who don't appreciate "new" or "different from potatoes". This might be the push I needed.

Next time, say you need to pick up kamut, amaranth or teff and really blow his mind. :-)

That is so funny! My husband and I had a similar conversation several months ago when I made a recipe with farro. My husband was very skeptical, but loved it in the end.
Have you tried this recipe with farro? My husband and I and our three children loved it.
