Dan Barber is a big proponent of using whole grains, which are healthier and more delicious than the processed kinds. One of the grains he’s most keen on is emmer wheat, also known as farro, which he uses in this savory, carrot-rich dish.More Farro Recipes
The sweet, nutty-tasting emmer wheat in this recipe is slightly cracked, so it cooks more quickly. It’s available at bluebirdgrain farms.com. If using whole emmer, crack the grains in a blender for 15 to 20 seconds.
