Farro with Spinach & Parmesan
Serve this quick cheesy farro side dish to complement our Roasted Chicken Thighs with Olives & Lemons or another roasted entrée. Fresh spinach adds another dose of nutrients and a bright, green finish.
Test Kitchen Tip
It might seem like a lot of spinach, but as it cooks it will wilt down.
Heat oil in a saucepan over medium. Add farro and shallots and cook until farro is toasted, 2 minutes. Deglaze pan with wine and cook until absorbed, 1 minute. Add broth and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until broth is absorbed and farro is tender, about 25 minutes.
Toss in spinach with tongs until wilted. Stir in Parmesan and season farro with salt and pepper.
