Vegan Mushroom Farro Stew

About This Recipe:

If you are looking for a vegan dish that is stick to your ribs good and really filling, you have to try this mushroom farro stew. Even though it is vegan, this stew is super rich, creamy, and hearty. The mushrooms and red wine give the stew a deep savory flavor, and the farro naturally makes it nice and creamy.

This recipe is also great because it does not require a long simmer period. Once the farro is done, the dish is ready to serve so it is not a time intensive stew. I came up with this recipe because I love farro, but had only used it for grain bowls in the past even though it is so much more versatile than that. If you are okay with making this dish vegetarian instead of vegan, a splash of heavy cream at the end or a sprinkling of parmesan cheese on top would make it even better!
