Instant Pot Fresh Pea Farrotto With Pea Shoots

Active time: 10 minutes Total time: 40 minutes

Farro is an “RD-choice” grain to cook with because of its delicious nutty flavor and high fiber and protein content. Nutty farro cooks in just 9 minutes in this whole-grain electric pressure cooker dish, the grains release starch as they cooks to make a creamy risotto-like dish. Semi-pearled farro is easy to find at grocery stores and still retains a distinctive chew and is full of healthy fiber. The addition of fresh peas (frozen is fine in a pinch), pea shoots and lemon give this hearty whole-grain dish a fresh flavor of spring.

Shopping tip: If you can’t find pea shoots (look at farmers markets and well-stocked groceries), substitute baby spinach, fennel fronds or baby arugula.
