Farrotto With Roasted Acorn Squash
The amount of time it takes to get the farro tender will vary depending on your farro. We like to soak our farro in room temperature water for an hour or two before using it in this dish. If you are looking to shorten the actual cooking time, you could parboil the farro for 20 minutes in salted water before adding it in the following recipe. Another important thing to remember here is that you must use low sodium chicken broth, and preferably use homemade stock where you can control the salt content. If you use normal chicken stock, by the time it has all reduced away, you could be left with a salt-lick of a dish.
