  • 180 g 6 oz. Pearled Farro
  • 2 Garlic cloves
  • 1 large Broccolo
  • 12-14 Shrimps
  • EVO Oil
  • Salt Pepper
  • Chili Pepper in flakes
  • 1 tbsp Butter
  • 1 tbsp Parmesan cheese


  • Boil the spelt in slightly salted water following the package instructions. Mine boils for 20 minutes.
  • In a pan drizzle the oil and fry the garlic cloves halved until they start to color, then add the broccoli chopped in small pieces and add a little bit of water. Cover with the lid and cook for about 10 minutes.
  • Roughly chop the shrimps in 2 or 3 parts and add them to the pan; season with salt, pepper and chili pepper flakes.
  • Remove the lid and cook for 1-2 minutes, then add the drained spelt.
  • Turn off the heat, add a knot of butter and the Parmesan cheese to blend the flavours together and serve.


TIP 1: Add a tablespoon of chopped tarragon for a fresh and aromatic flavour.
TIP 2: Try it with smoked salmon instead of shrimps.. yum!
