  • 1/2 cup farro*
  • 1 1/4 cup water, divided
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup almond milk, or milk of your choosing
  • 1/4 cup dried cherries
  • 1 tablespoon of brown sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons almonds, sliced and toasted


  • Using a high powered blender or food processor grind the farro until it becomes a powder. Using a medium saucepan, bring 1 cup of water to a boil. Slowly sprinkle the farro powder over the boiling water, whisking to combine.
  • Turn heat down to a medium low simmer and continue to whisk for 10 minutes.
  • In a separate small saucepan over medium heat, add in cherries, brown sugar and 1/4 cup water. Bring to a simmer and cook until sugar is dissolved (about 2 minutes).
  • When the farro is about 2 minutes from being done add in the almond milk.
  • Divide the porridge into two bowls then spoon the cherries and some of the brown sugar syrup over the top. Sprinkle with almonds and enjoy!


If you can't find farro, try wheat berries, kamut, or pearled barley. You can also combine several grains like amaranth, millet, brown rice, and steel cut oats. The key for porridge is to grind them into a flour before cooking them.
