Farro and White Bean Bowls With Lemon-Thyme Dressing

Farro is an ancient, Italian form of wheat, with a nutty flavor and a chewy texture. When you shop for farro, you might see both whole “Grano Entero” and pearled “Perlato” or “Semi-Perlato.” While whole farro takes longer to cook, it’s considered a whole grain, whereas pearled, which cooks in as little as 25 minutes, isn’t. Since the bran has been removed, it has less fiber and protein per serving. This dish can be served as a “bowl” with a farro base and toppings arranged on top or tossed to mix and served as a grain salad.
