Farro with pecans and cinnamon = modern colivă

When I saw the pack of pre-cooked farro @Trader Joe’s I had an instant flash back of the “colivă” my grandma used to make.

After more research I realized that what I needed for colivă was wheat grains not farro, but I decided to give it a try and see what happens. 🙂

 

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup farro

2 cups water

4 tbs brown sugar

(I should have used more than that, but I I am afraid of sugar :D)

1/2 tbs rum extraction

1/2 tbs vanilla

1/2 cinnamon

lemon zest

 orange zest

1/2 cup pecan meal

1/2 cup pecan in really small pieces

 

Steam the farro or cook it on very low heat for 30- 40 minutes.

Let it cool down and combine it with the rest of the ingredients.

It seems like my childhood foods are hunting me this days, but it’s really healthy and tasty.

ENJOY!
