Garlic mushrooms with white beans and farro
1 cup dried white navy beans
1/2 cup farro
2 tablespoons hulled barley
about 3 cups mushrooms, finely chopped
9 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 finely chopped jalapeno pepper
1 tablespoon Thai red curry paste
1 tablespoon shallot powder
2 tablespoons onion powder
Water to cover over about 1 1/2 inches above the ingredients
2 medium tomatoes, diced
Cook all of the ingredients except the tomatoes, cilantro and scallions in the Instant Pot on the “Soup” setting (30 minutes)>
Stir in the diced tomatoes when it has finished cooking, and serve topped with lots of cilantro and scallions.
It only made about 3 servings, so I would probably add another 1/2 cup beans and more mushrooms the next time I make it, and I might consider adding some minced ginger. But otherwise, this recipe really hit the spot. We love the farro because it adds a nice chewy texture. The barley makes it a little creamier – and with all of the mushrooms, it makes a nice soup!
I just love the concoctions that come out of my Instant Pot!
