Farro gets the silky risotto treatment in this fall-flavored slow cooker recipe.

4    tablespoons   unsalted butter
1      medium onion, diced
2      cloves garlic, minced
1/4   cup   white wine (optional)
1 1/2   cups   whole farro (not pearled)
4    cups   unsalted vegetable stock
1    can (15 oz)  pumpkin puree
6    tablespoons   grated Parmesan
1    tablespoon   fresh sage, chopped
1    box (10 oz)  frozen peas, thawed
1    teaspoon   salt
1/4   teaspoon   black pepper
1/2   cup   toasted walnuts, chopped
Melt 3 tbsp of the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, 3 minutes. Stir in garlic; cook 2 minutes. Add wine and farro; cook 1 minute or until most of the wine evaporates. Transfer to slow cooker.
Stir in vegetable stock, pumpkin, 4 tbsp of the Parmesan and the sage. Cover and cook on HIGH for 4 hours. Uncover and gently stir in peas, remaining 1 tbsp butter, the salt and pepper. Spoon into bowls and top with walnuts and remaining 2 tbsp Parmesan.
For easy cleanup:
Line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your dish is finished cooking, spoon the food out of your slow cooker and simply dispose of the liner. Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.
