InHarvest Products Used


Yield: 2½ cups

  • 2 c. water, lightly salted
  • 8 oz. InHarvest Farro
  • 3 Poblano chiles
  • 2 Jalapeño chiles
  • ¾ c. fresh cilantro, rough chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1/3 c. olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • ¼ c. white or red vinegar
  • ½ c. water
  • 1 lime


  1. Preheat grill to medium heat.
  2. On stovetop, bring 2 c. lightly salted water to a boil and add InHarvest Farro. Simmer 30 minutes. (If liquid disappears, add a little more to keep Farro moist.) Drain and chill Farro on a sheet tray.
  3. Char chiles for 10 to 15 minutes. Turn once or twice to get an even cook.
  4. Remove chiles from grill and place into a zip-lock bag. Seal bag and let sit for 15 minutes. Remove chiles from bag. Seed and peel, then cool.
  5. In a food processor, purée charred chiles, cilantro, garlic and olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  6. Add chilled Farro, vinegar and ½ c. water. Purée until fairly smooth. Adjust seasoning as needed.
  7. Add juice from lime and incorporate well. Chill until service. Serve with chips or raw vegetables.
