Pilaf doesn’t always have to be made with rice. Try other grains! We used farro for this seasonal autumn pilaf, but bulgur, quinoa, or wheat berries would be great here too.


  1. Cook 1/2 diced onion in 2 tablespoons butter in a saucepan, 4 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Add 1 cup pearled farro and 1 1/2 cups chicken broth. Bring to a boil, then add 1 cup diced butternut squash. Cover, reduce the heat to medium low and cook 15 minutes. Scatter 2 cups shredded Brussels sprouts on top, cover and cook until the farro is tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, 1/4 cup raisins and some chopped parsley.
