Farro is having something of a moment lately, becoming a favorite grain of chefs and home cooks alike for its nutty flavor, addictively chewy texture, and high fiber content. Here, we’re nodding to its place in Italian cuisine (it has a history there that goes back to Roman times), preparing it risotto-style. To fill it out, we’re adding in bright lemon, crunchy walnuts, and green veggies prepared two ways.

About 5 minutes before farro is done, stir asparagus stalks into pot (grains should be just shy of al dente). Drain once both are tender, then add to pan with onion and garlic. Stir in half the lemon zest, juice from lemon half, half the Parmesan, and 1 TBSP butter. Season with salt and pepper.
