Farro, Orange, and Pine-Nut Dressing

Source: Martha Stewart Living, December 2006


  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped (about 1/2 cup)
  • 2 celery stalks, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh sage
  • 2 teaspoons fennel seeds, coarsely chopped
  • 1 dried chile, crumbled
  • 2 cups farro
  • 3 1/2 cups homemade or low-sodium store-bought turkey or chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 navel oranges, peel and pith removed, flesh cut into segments
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted


  1. Melt butter with the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add shallots and celery, and cook, stirring often, until soft, about 3 minutes. Add 2 tablespoons parsley, the sage, fennel seeds, and chile, and cook 1 minute. Stir in farro, stock, and wine, and bring to a boil. Season with 1 teaspoon salt.

  2. Reduce heat to low; cover, and cook until farro is tender and liquid has been absorbed, about 30 minutes.

  3. Stir in orange segments, pine nuts, and remaining 1/4 cup parsley. Season with salt and pepper.
