Butternut Squash Farro Risotto

Butternut Squash Farro Risotto
The farro doesn’t need stirring unlike risotto rice, but still gives that comfort food feeling. You could replace it with any cooked vegetable or even add in raw greens before reheating. Definitely a firm vegetarian favourite but you could use chicken or fish stock and add chicken or fish for a more substantial meal
