Print Add Add To My Grocery List


1 cup whole grain farro (see note)
3 cups low sodium or no-salt-added vegetable broth
10 ounces mushrooms, any variety, sliced
5 large cloves garlic
1/4 cup chopped parsley or dill
1/2 teaspoon no-salt seasoning blend or to taste


In a medium saucepan, combine farro and vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover the pot and cook for 30 to 45 minutes, until grains are tender but not split and have absorbed all the liquid.

Meanwhile, heat 2-3 tablespoons of water in a large skillet and water saute mushrooms and garlic until tender and most of the liquid has cooked off.

Add the cooked farro to the pan with the mushrooms, stir in chopped parsley and no-salt seasoning.

Note: Look for whole grain or semi-pearled farro. Pearled farro cooks faster but the nutritious germ and bran have been removed.

SO good! I made it with shitake and white mushrooms.  I added both the fresh parsley and some dried dill, and then some fresh ground black pepper at the end. I can't stop eating it out of the pan! Thank you for this one!
