“I modified the Trader Joe's 10 Minute Farro package recipe. It is easy and delicious. I keep all my recipes here and I don't want to loose this one.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 78 ounces cracked farro
  • 3 chicken sausage, remove casings
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1 large apple, diced small
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • red chili pepper flakes, to taste


  1. Cook farro per package instructions. I put 1 part farro to 2 parts broth or water into a rice cooker and let it work. Takes my rice cooker about 15-20 minutes to complete.
  2. In a large skillet over high heat, crumble sausage and stir until browned, about 5 minutes.
  3. Remove sausage and set aside, keep sausage drippings.
  4. If pan is too dry, add butter and melt. Add onion, garlic and apple; saute until tender, about 5-6 minutes.
  5. Add farro and sausage back to skillet; season to taste with salt, pepper and chili flakes; stir until warmed through, about 1 or 2 minutes more.
  6. Serve warm with a green salad.
