We love farro at lunch and dinner, but did you know it also makes a delicious hot breakfast cereal? This recipe, inspired by an idea from one of our patients, is a tasty way to get out of an oatmeal rut. Feel free to get creative with the spices, swap ½ cup berries for the banana, or try almonds in place of the walnuts. Enjoy!
Makes 2 servings
½ cup dry farro
½ cup unsweetened almond milk (vanilla or plain)
½ tsp cinnamon
½ chopped banana
1 tbsp chopped walnuts
- Cook farro according to package instructions.
- Add milk and cinnamon to farro, and stir to combine.
- Divide between bowls, add ¼ chopped banana and 1/2 tbsp chopped walnuts to each bowl.
- Add more milk if needed to reach desired consistency.
