I would like to create the recipe at https://30seconds.com/food/tip/24237...amelized-Leeks
. The recipe calls for pearled or semi-pearled farro, but I want to substitute whole grain farro as it is healthier. The recipe calls for adding the semi-peraled/pearled farro to a pan which has chicken and vegetables and cooking for 25-30 minutes. I'm wondering if I should pre-soak the whole grain farro to ensure it is cooked through by the 25-30 minutes. I don't want to keep the farro cooking in the pan past this time, as I'd risk overcooking the chicken and veggies. I'd appreciate your input. Thanks!
