One-Pan Farro with Tomatoes

1 cup semi-pearled farro*
2 cups water
1/2 onion, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
9 oz. cherry or grape tomatoes, halved or quartered
1 tsp. kosher salt
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
1 Tbsp. olive oil
Fresh basil, cut into thin ribbons
Grated Parmesan cheese

Place farro and water into a medium saucepan. Add onions, garlic tomatoes, salt, red pepper flakes and one Tbsp. olive oil and bring to a boil uncovered. Gently simmer without a lid, stirring occasionally, for about 30 minutes, until farro is tender. The cooking water should be almost completely absorbed.

Transfer to a serving bowl and top with basil and grated Parmesan cheese.

*Farro is a variety of wheat. Semi-pearled farro is the most widely available, and it can be found at many supermarkets or at Whole Foods Market. I got my first bag of farro at Costco, which shows you how universally available it has become!
