This baked farro risotto with canned tomatoes uses pantry ingredients and takes the simmering from the stove to the oven. It’s an easy recipe that doesn’t involve constant stirring.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small white onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 11/2 cups farro
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 128 ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 2 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan plus more for serving
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley for serving


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a large ovenproof saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium high heat. Sauté the onions until they start to turn soft and translucent, about 4-5 minutes.  Add the garlic, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes cooking until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  3. Stir in the farro and cook for 1 minute. Pour in the wine, letting it bubble and be absorbed by the farro.
  4. Add the tomatoes and vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Cover the saucepan with a lid and transfer to the oven. 
  5. Bake for 30-35 minutes until the farro is tender. Stir in the Parmesan and parsley. Top with more before serving.


Store leftover risotto in the refrigerator in an airtight container up to 3 days. Warm it in the microwave or on the stove with a little olive oil.
