  • 2 cups chicken broth

  • 1 (8.8 ounce) package quick-cook farro (such as Trader Joe's®)

  • 1 pound bulk sweet turkey Italian sausage

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 2 Granny Smith apples, peeled and diced

  • 1 large onion, diced

  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes


  1. Bring chicken broth to a boil; add farro. Cook until farro is tender, about 10 minutes. Drain.

  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir sausage until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer sausage to a bowl using a slotted spoon, reserving remaining grease in the skillet.

  3. Melt butter into the reserved grease over medium heat; cook and stir apples, onion, and garlic until apples are tender, 5 to 6 minutes. Add sausage and farro. Season with red pepper flakes, salt, and black pepper. Continue to cook and stir until warmed through, 1 to 2 minutes more.
