Einkorn is a type of farro similar to emmer and spelt. These whole einkorn berries are packed with protein and other essential vitamins, but are low in gluten making them suitable for those with gluten sensitivities (not for those with celiac disease).
How to use
Simmer in stock or water for 25-30 minutes and top cooked einkorn with your farmer's market haul and a tangy vinaigrette made with Katz Sparkling Wine Vinegar for a filling grain bowl. Or give your einkorn the risotto treatment and simmer with broth, white wine and plenty of Parmigiano-Reggiano for a whole grain twist on the creamy Italian classic.
