How to Cook Farro (Instant Pot and Stovetop Directions + Recipes)

a white bowl with Farro inside




Stove Top Instructions

  1. Place the farro and cooking liquid of choice in a pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cover the pot.
  2. Cook until the liquid is absorbed and farro is cooked, see times in notes.

Instant Pot Instructions

  1. Place 1 cup farro and 2 cups vegetable stock in the inner pot. Press the manual or pressure cook button and adjust the timer to 10 minutes.
  2. When the timer beeps, let the pressure release naturally for 10 more minutes, then quick release any remaining pressure.
  3. Most of the liquid should be absorbed, but you can drain it if there is more than you would like. I like it with a small amount of liquid remaining in the pot and not completely dry.
