Preheat Oven and Cook Farro
Preheat Oven and Cook Farro

Adjust rack to middle position and preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a medium pot, stir together farro, stock concentrate, and 3½ cups water. Bring to a boil and cook until tender, 30-35 minutes total. TIP: If water evaporates before farro is done, add a splash more.

Roast Squash

Meanwhile, halve, peel, and dice onion. Mince or grate garlic. Halve, peel, and thinly slice shallot. Finely chop parsley. Place shallot, vinegar, and ½ tsp sugar in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to combine. Set aside.

Toast Nuts
Toast Nuts

Heat a large pan over medium heat. Add pistachios and toss frequently until toasted and fragrant, 3-4 minutes. (TIP: If nuts seem like they might burn, remove pan from heat for a few seconds.) Remove from pan and set aside to cool. Roughly chop once cool enough to handle.

Toss Farro

A few minutes before farro is done, heat a large drizzle of olive oil in pan used for nuts over medium-high heat. Add onion. Cook, tossing frequently, until softened, 3-4 minutes. Add garlic and cook, tossing, until fragrant, 1 minute more. Once farro is tender, drain any excess water, then toss into pan with onion and garlic. Stir in half the pistachios, half the Parmesan, and 1 TBSP butter. Remove pan from heat.
