  • 1 cup farro
  • 2 3/4 cups water or veg stock
  • 200 g romanesco or cauliflower florets
  • 1 can cannellini beans or beans of your liking
  • 1/2 cup passata
  • 1 tsp or to taste crushed black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp or to taste red chilli flakes
  • 1 lemon zest
  • 1 banana shallot or onion small diced
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 tbsp fresh oregano or basil chopped
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tbsp olive oil


  • Wash the farro thoroughly, strain it and keep it aside.
  • In a heavy-bottomed casserole add in the oil, add garlic and saute for 30 seconds. Tip in the shallot and saute for 2 minutes.
  •  Tip in the farro and fry for 2-3 minutes till the grains are coated in fat. Add in the spice powders, saute for a few seconds.
  • Add in the passata, mix it well and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Tip in the romanesco. Now add in the water or vegetable stock, simmer for 10 minutes with a lid slightly ajar.
  • Add in the herbs, lemon zest and beans. Give it a stir and adjust the salt if needed. Cook for another 5-7 minutes till the farro is properly cooked.
  • Garnish with fresh herbs. I served it with roasted tomatoes on the vine. Served hot.
