9ouncesgrape tomatoes(just under 1 pint, although I often toss all of them in) (don't use larger tomatoes, it won't taste as good)
⅛teaspoonred pepper flakes(you can use up to ¼ teaspoon, ⅛ is spicy enough for us)
Basil leaves (cut into ribbons (optional)) (parsley works fine too)
Place water and farro in a pan to soak while you slice other ingredients. Slice onion into thin slivers. Mince or slice garlic. Cut tomatoes into halves or quarters. Add vegetables, salt, red pepper flakes, and olive oil to pan. Bring pot to a boil, then reduce heat to maintain a simmer.
Cook for about 30 minutes (or however long your package of farro says to cook it). Farro will be tender but a little chewy. If the cooking water isn't completely absorbed, you can cook it another 5-10 minutes without problems. Top with basil and parmesan if desired, but I don't think it's necessary.
Cooking time may vary depending on how long your farro says it will take to cook.
