Yet, another reason...
4. I’m not too fond of quinoa
Pronounced “KEEN-wah.” You know, that South American grain that’s all the rage with the hip and healthy. I mean, it’s okay. I’ve eaten it. I even cooked it once. Then the bag sat in the cabinet for a year until we got pantry moths. I was sad to throw away the cumin. I was not sad to throw away the quinoa.
If I had to pick an alternative grain (meaning, not rice, not cous cous, not wheat, oats, barley, cornmeal, or hominy), and anyone who’s anyone is picking an alternative grain, it just might be farro. Maybe. But you know what’s better than farro and quinoa?
