What is farro exactly? It's an ancient grain that is both full of fiber and protein! In 1/4 cup dry farro there is about 7g of protein and 7g of fiber. If you're looking to increase whole grains in your diet, try it as a substitute for rice or orzo!

This recipe takes on a sweet and salty flavor with the fresh apple mixed with the feta cheese. Serve as a side dish or enjoy as a full meal. Great additions or substitutions may include walnuts, small slices of orange, or goat cheese. Enjoy!
