A twist on the traditional turkey companion, this healthy holiday dish uses farro (also known as emmer wheat), a popular Italian whole grain with a nutty taste that's making its way into American kitchens. You can typically find it in specialty stores.

  • Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add farro and cook until tender, about 30 minutes; drain and return to pot.
