About the author


My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is truly a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and enjoying adequate exercise. By experimenting in the kitchen and openly sharing my meals, I learned that healthy eating is hardly boring and that by making a few adjustments, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my personal fitness goals. Our bodies are built in the kitchen and sculpted in the gym.

High Protein White Bean & Mushroom Farro (V)


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