This cilantro lime farro recipe is a tasty and healthier alternative to traditional rice.



  • 1 cup farro, rinsed
  • 3 cups vegetable or chicken stock
  • 1/3 cup finely-chopped fresh cilantro leaves, loosely-packed
  • zest and juice of 1 small lime (about 2 tablespoons juice)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • pinch of cumin and garlic powder and black pepper


  1. Place farro in a medium saucepan and add the stock. (It should cover the farro.) Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 30 minutes. Once the farro is cooked and chewy, drain off any excess liquid.
  2. Add remaining ingredients, and stir to combine. Season with extra salt and pepper, if needed. Serve warm.
