Farroto with Peas and Parmesan

1 T olive oil
½ C chopped onion
1 C farro
4 C chicken broth
1 T butter
1 C finely grated Parmesan cheese
1 C fresh or frozen peas

Place oil in a large saucepan on medium heat. Add onion and stir for about 3 minutes, or until tender. Add farro and stir for about 5 minutes, or until toasted. Add chicken broth, about ½ cup at a time. Cook and stir after each addition, until broth is absorbed. Continue adding broth, stirring often, until farro is tender, but not mushy. (The process takes about 40 minutes.) Stir in the butter, Parmesan and peas. Cook and stir until heated through.

Hint: Cooking farro this way is like making risotto, but farro contains more antioxidants and fiber than rice and is therefore healthier.
