A comforting vegetarian risotto with pearl barley. Serves 4 Ready in about 1 hour Nutritional Information Per serving: 486kcals 9.2g fat (1.9g saturated) 12.7g protein 93.8g carbs 13.7g sugar 0.6g salt Ingredients * 450g peeled butternut squash, cut into 2cm chunks * 2 red peppers, halved, deseeded and cut into chunky pieces * 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil * 1 medium onion, finely chopped * 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped * Leaves from 3 large, fresh thyme sprigs * 350g pearl barley * 1.5 litres vegetable stock, hot * 3 tbsp chopped fresh flatleaf parsley * 4 small handfuls wild rocket * Vegetarian Parmesan shavings, to serve Method: How to make pearl barley risotto 1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6. Put the squash and peppers in a small roasting tin, drizzle with 1 tablespoon of the oil, season and toss. Roast for 35 minutes or until tender, turning halfway, then remove from the oven and set aside. 2. Meanwhile, start the risotto. Heat the remaining oil in a medium pan over a medium-low heat. Add the onion, garlic and thyme leaves and cook gently, stirring occasionally, for 6-8 minutes, until softened. Add the pearl barley and cook for 1 minute. 3. Add a quarter of the stock to the pan and simmer, stirring occasionally, until all the stock has been absorbed. Add another quarter of the stock and continue in this way until all the stock is absorbed – it should take about 40 minutes for the barley to be tender but still al dente. 4. Stir in the parsley followed by the squash and peppers. Season and spoon into warmed bowls. Serve topped with the rocket and some Parmesan shavings.

Lemon Barley water - Wed 16th Oct 2013

Cup of pearl barley, washed well and drained.

3 lemons, unwaxed if possible, if waxed - scrub well before using.
half a cup of honey, you can also use sugar or xylitol, adjust amount to suit taste.

7/8 cups of water

Squeeze the lemons and remove the peel, setting aside the juice.

Add the peel to a pot, along with the barley and water.

Bring to the boil, then simmer for 15-30 minutes, with no lid. Add honey and lemon juice to a bowl and mix well.

Sieve the barley/lemon peel liquid into the bowl, discarding the solids.
Mix well, bottle or jar and refridgerate.

This is a delicious juice which can be diluted with water to make a refreshing long drink. Traditionally, barley water was used as a tonic, given to those recovering from illness, but we drink it because we like it.

Delicious in risotto chewy and nutty

Delicious alternative for risotto - Sun 17th Jul 2016

I often use this instead of rice for risottos, it keeps its texture very nicely and doesn't turn to mush. Also nice in soups. Good packaging. Highly recommended!

Great Barley, makes creamy rissotto, and great to add to stews and soups for added roughage

Try a barley pilaf with chicken and leftover veg. Really economical. Comfort food.

So far I've used this in soups and am planning a few bottles of barley water, it's a good quality barley, cooks well, not all barley does and was very clean, didn't take much rinsing beforehand and pretty tasty.

Comfort Food - Sun 20th Jan 2013

A top slow-release energy food that staves off hunger pangs and food cravings. Filling and warming - a comfort food. Great in winter soups and stews when you want to keep up energy levels without gaining weight.

nutricious - Mon 31st Oct 2011

It's a super nutritious, low calorie, high in proteins food I use in all my casseroles!
I'm vegan and choose it as my number one! I could not live without it! :-)
