    A very rustic take on risotto. Used dried oyster mushrooms instead of porcini. I get them really cheap at an Asian market. Used veg. stock (we're vegetarians). It is a super recipe to make when you have fresh basil and parsley in the garden. Went well with a nice earthy red Cote du Rhone wine. Will make again for guests.

      Very rich taste. 'Farro' is the ancient name for wheat; there is Emmer, Einkorn whole grains too. So good to try real goodness...Thanks Martha! Just came from a COOL CONTROL WHOLE WHEAT FRENCH BREAD masterclass by Ben Lester ( and loved it! Please check it out!
