Wild Mushroom & Barley Risotto

May/June 2007

Your rating: None Average: 4 (54 votes)

In this pungent mushroom risotto, we substitute fiber-rich barley for the more traditional arborio rice. Any combination of mushrooms will work; if you use shiitakes, remove the stems from the caps before using.

Fantastic dish! Risotta is always labor intensive, but this is one version that is definitely worth the effort. Meaty, flavorful and very filling. Really, really good! It looks beautiful too. Great dish for dinner parties too.

One tip: while cooking this I thought it wasn't seasoned enough. I almost added salt, but thankfully I didn't. I hadn't taken the broth I was adding into consideration. Never did need to add salt. Also, be careful not to have the flame up too high, otherwise the barley won't absorb as much liquid.

The chicken broth, does not

The chicken broth, does not go along with the vegetarian theme. That being said, I have made risotto many times, and just use vegetable broth and it has good flavor!
