Like emmer and spelt, einka is a type of farro; an Italian term for “ancient hulled wheat.” It is petite, rich in protein, phosphorus, vitamin B6, potassium, antioxidants and amino acids. It contains natural carotenoids that are commonly found in vegetables. Einka has a low gluten content which is reflective of its simple chromosome count of 14. Einka may be small and delicate but it is a nutritional powerhouse that brings conviction to your meal. It’s easy to cook; simmer it in stock or water for 30 minutes covered, strain, and prepare hot or cold.
