Enjoy our Mushroom and Asparagus Farro Risotto, a deliciously hearty dish packed with earthy mushrooms, tender farro grains, and aromatic garlic and onions. The creamy texture and savory flavors make every bite deeelicious. Arborio rice risotto lacks the fiber and chewiness of farro, so this is a good healthy substitute. At 10 gms of fiber per serving if gets you to 20% of your daily fiber needs and is quite filling.

Ingredients

  • 1 c farro

  • 4 c vegetable broth

  • 1/2 c broth for broth saute

  • 1 onion, finely chopped

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 8 ounces mushrooms (such as cremini or shiitake), sliced

  • 1 bunch trimmed and chopped bite sized asparagus

  • 1/2 c dry white wine (optional)

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 2 T nutritional yeast (optional)

  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish

Instructions

  • In a medium saucepan, bring the vegetable broth to a simmer and keep it warm over low heat.
  • In a separate large skillet or pot, heat a tiny bit of broth over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and sauté until softened, about 5 minutes. Keep adding broth a bit at a time so they caramelize as if using oil.
  • Add the mushrooms and asparagus to the skillet and cook until they release their juices and become tender, about 5-7 minutes.
  • Stir in the farro and cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • If using, pour in the white wine and cook until it has evaporated.
  • Begin adding the warm vegetable broth to the skillet, about 1/2 cup at a time, stirring frequently and allowing the farro to absorb the liquid before adding more. Continue this process until the farro is tender and creamy, about 30-40 minutes.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the nutritional yeast if using.
  • Serve hot, garnished with chopped fresh parsley.
