Easy, no-fuss Instant Pot Farro cooks without any hands-on time needed, simple add to the instant bowl, set the timer and cook, freeing up space on the stovetop!
Cooking times (recipe if for a 6qt. Instant Pot):
Drain: Once farro is done, lift the basket (or transfer the farro to a colander) and give it a good rinse under cool or warm running water.
Use in salads, casseroles, soups, nourish bowls, and more.
Add flavor using vegetable broth or vegetable paste with water.
Tip: When venting early, I put a thin folded kitchen towel over the valve so the pressure doesn’t spew liquids all over. If using a thicker towel, just one layer is good. You want to be sure it’s porous enough to let the steam through.
Recommended Equipment: I used this Instant Pot and perforated strainer (cutting off the black rubber handle to not cook with plastic), but this official IP mesh strainer combo looks great too (affiliate links).
