Servings: 6
Total Time: 45 minutes
Recipe by: Frankie


1 cup whole grain farro
3 cups vegetable broth
1 TBSP olive oil
1 large yellow onion, diced
1 TBSP chili powder
1 TBSP dried oregano
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp garlic powder
salt & pepper
1/4 cup water
18 taco shells
optional toppings: shredded lettuce, shredded cheese, diced tomatoes, sour cream, etc.


1. Rinse farro thoroughly under cold water in a fine mesh strainer. Add rinsed farro to a medium saucepan with the vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes. Drain farro of any excess liquid and set aside.

2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 8 minutes.

3. Add the cooked farro to the pan along with the chili powder, oregano, garlic powder, cumin, 1/2 tsp salt, and the water. Stir to combine and cook until heated through, about 1 minute. Take off the heat and season with salt and pepper to taste.

4. Warm up your taco shells and fill with the farro mixture and your favorite toppings.
