Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information.

Instructions

  1. One hour before starting, cover farro with water and soak at room temperature. Drain after one hour and reserve.
  2. The squash can be roasting while you prepare the farro. Preheat oven to 400F. Cut the acorn squash into large wedges. In a small bowl combine all the spices. Brush the squash with olive oil and sprinkle with the spice mixture. Arrange cut side down on a baking sheet and put into the oven. Turn after about 15 minutes, and remove from the oven after about 30 minutes, once the squash is golden and tender. Let cool until easy to handle, then remove the outer skin and chop into bite sized pieces. Set aside.
  3. In a saucepan, bring the broth to a boil over high heat; add a bay leaf, lower the heat and keep covered at a simmer.
  4. In a large heavy saucepan, melt the butter with the olive oil over low heat. Add the shallots and cook, stirring occasionally, until the shallots are translucent, about 4 minutes. Increase the heat to moderate, and cook, stirring, until the shallots are golden. Add the farro and cook, stirring constantly, for about 5 minutes, to toast slightly.
  5. Add the wine and cook, stirring constantly, until the wine is absorbed by the grains, about 3 minutes. Stir in the sage and 1 cup of the broth and cook at a gentle simmer, stirring frequently, until almost all the liquid is absorbed. Continue adding the broth in this fashion, to 1 cup at a time, until the farro is tender yet still firm in the center, and the risotto is creamy but not soupy (it may not require all 7 cups of broth). This could take an hour or more depending on your farro.
  6. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the sour cream, 1/4 cup of the Parmigiano-Reggiano, and pepper to taste. Gently fold in the roasted and chopped squash. Top with remaining Parmesan cheese and serve immediately.

Tips

Health Tips

  • If you are cooking with wine, be aware that the amount of alcohol that evaporates could be much less than you think. In fact, researchers found that anywhere between 4 and 49 percent of the alcohol in a dish might remain depending on the cooking method, length of cooking, etc. If you're concerned about the amount of alcohol you're consuming, keep an eye on how much wine is going into your dish!

  • Since most of its calories come from fat, sour cream has a bad reputation for being an unhealthy food. However, fat is an important part of the diet and studies suggest people who eat full fat dairy are thinner than those who reach for reduced fat products. That said, fat has more calories per gram than carbohydrates or protein, so if you are counting calories to lose weight, you might want to try substituting greek yogurt for some of the sour cream in recipes that call for a lot of it.

  • If you can, choose grassfed butter for a better nutritional profile—more vitamins, a favorable omega 3/6 ratio, etc.

  • Some bouillon/stock products contain gluten, some don't. If you are following a gluten-free diet, always read product labels carefully.

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • Confused by the different types of cream — Most differences arise from the fat content of the cream, and whether or not the cream has been "soured" by adding lactic acid bacteria to give it a tangy flavor.

  • Butter's incredible flavor has made it an extremely popular cooking fat, but it is important to know that butter has the lowest smoke point of almost any cooking fat. This means butter literally starts to smoke at a lower temperature than most other fats between 250-350 degrees Fahrenheit. So while butter is great for cooking at lower temperatures, you should probably use canola oil, coconut oil, or another oil with a higher smoke point for frying and other high temperature cooking.

  • When buying wine for cooking, it is certainly not a bad idea to buy a wine you would enjoy drinking (some wine for the dish, some wine for the chef?) But if your favorite wines cost a small fortune, save them for drinking and purchase a cheaper?though still good quality!?wine for cooking. Just don't buy "cooking wine" with added salt, food coloring, etc.

  • Kosher salt is a type of coarse-grained salt popular among chefs because it is easy to pick up with the fingertips and sticks well when coating meat. The name "kosher salt" comes from the word "koshering", the process of making food suitable for consumption according to Jewish law. You can easily substitute table salt or sea salt in recipes where the salt is being dissolved, but if you're using it to coat meat, you might wish you had the kosher salt.
