Pineapple Fried Farro

Let’s talk about Farro! It is delicious and as healthy as quinoa but with a texture similar to rice!! I love this stuff! Packed with protein and fiber this grain is awesome for your waistline! If you have a wheat intolerance it is important to note that farro is not gluten-free.

I had leftover coconut crusted chicken and I thought what would go better with it than pineapple fried farro!! I’m a huge fan of Thai food and pineapple fried rice is one of my favorites. But it’s high in calories! Of course with all recipes I think of ways to make them healthier and that is where pineapple fried farro comes in!
