Toasted Farro

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tbsp gochugaru
  • 2 cups farro
  • 3 cloves garlic smashed
  • 4 cups water


  • 2 cups toasted farro cooled
  • 2 ears sweet corn shucked
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes halved
  • 1 English cucumber diced
  • 1/2 bunch Italian parsley minced
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro minced
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 3 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste


  • To make the toasted farro, in a heavy Dutch oven over medium-high heat, add olive oil and gochugaru, and farro, then garlic. SautĂ© until nice and fragrant — about 5 minutes. Add water and bring to a boil, then simmer.
  • Cook until the farro is soft but still has some bite. Be very careful not to overcook. Drain, then spread onto a sheet pan to cool.
  • To make the salad, mix all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper.
