High Protein White Bean & Mushroom Farro (V)

High Protein White Bean & Mushroom Farro (V)

Ingredients for 6 servings

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 medium white onion, chopped or diced
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms (I used baby portobello)
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups dry (uncooked) farro
  • 2 tablespoons The Fit Cook Land seasoning
  • 4 cups low sodium vegetable broth (add more as necessary)
  • pinch of sea salt & black pepper
  • 1 can (15oz/425g) white beans (cannellini), drained
  • 1/2 cup fresh chopped parsley
  • 1/3 cup nutritional yeast
  • sea salt & pepper to taste


Step 1

Set a large pot (with a heavy lid) on medium high heat.  Once hot, add oil and onion.  Saute for 3 minutes until the onions turn slightly brown.  Then add the mushrooms and cook for another 2 -3 minutes or until sear marks appear along the edges of the mushrooms.

Step 2

Add the garlic, dry farro and seasoning.  Stir and ensure every grain is covered in the seasoning and oil, about 1 -2 minutes.

Step 3

Pour in the broth and bring to a light simmer.  Reduce the heat, then cover and cook for 25 – 30 minutes, or until 90% of the liquid has been absorbed.  Farro should be somewhat chewy.

Step 4

Remove the lid and fold in beans, parsley and nutritional yeast.  Fold everything together and continue cooking until 95% of the liquid has evaporated or been absorbed.

Step 5

Season to taste with sea salt & pepper.  Enjoy!

About Kevin - author


Hey, I'm Kevin

My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and maintaining an active lifestyle.

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget. Welcome, let's #DemocratizeWellness together!
