You’ll be amazed at how quickly this weeknight meal comes together. As the farro cooks, you’ll slice a shallot, crumble some feta, and chop a bit of dill. As soon as the grain is tender, you’ll be ready to assemble. To shave off even more time, look for quick-cooking farro at the grocery store. Though this dish is satisfying on its own thanks to the hearty whole grain and protein-packed cannellini beans, it would also be tasty topped with a cup or two of shredded rotisserie chicken, grilled shrimp, or roasted salmon. Leftovers make a great lunch, too—the flavors will continue to develop as it sits.
