I made it! It is absolutely delicious. I have never cooked farro before, but I followed the instructions, and it cooked up with the perfect nutty texture. I didn't have celery so used some celery seed instead, and I substituted chopped fresh cilantro for the coriander, which I also did not have. YUM! Thanks again for this wonderful summer recipe!
