  1. Put the olive oil into the cooking pot of the Cuisinart®  Pressure Cooker. Select Sauté. Once the oil is hot, add the carrots. Stir over the heat until slightly soft. Add the garlic, mushrooms, salt and thyme. Sauté until mushrooms release most of their moisture and the garlic is fragrant, about 5 to 8 minutes.  Add the sherry and cook until the liquid is evaporated.
  2. Add the farro, bay leaf and vegetable broth and secure the lid. Select High Pressure. Set the time for 10 minutes. When the audible beep sounds, allow pressure to release naturally.
  3. Once pressure is released completely, red indicator will drop. Remove the lid and stir in the pepper. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired. Remove the bay leaf and stir in the chopped parsley before serving.
