Farro Porridge With Figs, Cinnamon and Walnuts

Follow me on Instagram!


I had quite on and off relationships with breakfast until I moved to California.

Three years ago my husband and I realized that there is not much going on in our lives and we decided to move to San Francisco. All of the sudden I had tons of quality ingredients in front of me, in any time of the day in any place I go, so I started experimenting with the first meals of the day.

Farro is an ingredient that’s widely used in Russia. Even though I did not grow up eating it I love the taste and the smell somehow bounces me back to good old days.

This porridge is specifically good if you are training for the marathon or half marathon.

Pro tip: this recipe is 100% vegan and coconut milk is the best ingredient to cook your farro in. You can also reduce the number of calories by boiling farro in water. IF you don’t care about the calories try mixing coconut cream and coconut milk 50/50 it will be even better!
