Farro with Pistachios & Herbs

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/farro_with_pistachios_herbs.html

From EatingWell:  November/December 2007

Here we stir fresh parsley and crunchy pistachios into farro for a simple side dish. Serve this simple grain right in the same dish with a rich stew. The nutty flavors of farro and pistachios are the perfect complement to the rich broth of the stew.

10 servings, about 2/3 cup each | Active Time: 35 minutes | Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Combine farro, water and 3/4 teaspoon salt in a large heavy saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir and reduce the heat to a simmer; cook, uncovered, until the farro is tender, 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring, until translucent, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  3. Combine pistachios, the remaining 1/2 teaspoon oil and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl; toss to combine.
  4. Drain the farro and add to the bowl along with the onion mixture and parsley. Season with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Toss to combine.
