Alessi 7 oz. Farro Butternut Squash & Kale
Farro, known as the "Mother of all wheat" was so important to the Roman legion that it was sometimes used as currency. This ancient Mediterranean grain was and is still a staple food prized not only for its taste but also for its nutritional value. High in protein and fiber, it is very easy to digest and can be enjoyed in a number of ways. Alessi Farro with Butternut Squash & Kale begins with delicious, nutty flavored, whole grain farro. To the farro, we add the sweet, pumpkin-like taste of winter butternut squash and pair it with the nutritional powerhouse, kale. With a quick twenty minute cooking time, this hearty dish satiates hunger pangs and offers a pleasing texture. Use as a side dish or as a base for a one bowl meal.
