When a food is high in fiber, protein and low in fat, it is usually awarded the title of superfood. Ancient grains such as quinoa, spelt and barley have had their time in the superfood light, and now it is time to let farro shine. Farro is easy to make, a great alternative to rice and is packed with nutritional goodness, with high levels of magnesium and iron. Here are seven delicious ways to eat more farro.

1. Mixed Vegetable and Farro Soup

This thick, hearty soup is filled with a tasty mix of carrots, peas, leek, onion, borlotti beans and farro. Plus, it’s vegan.

2. Toasted Farro and Scallions with Cauliflower and Eggs

Inspired by a Moroccan porridge called herbel, this version subs farro for barley.

3. Sunchoke-Kale Hash with Farro
