Wild Mushroom & Barley Risotto

May/June 2007

Your rating: None Average: 4 (57 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.



READER'S COMMENT:
"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...

Really, Really Good!!!

This recipe is awesome! I actually made it using 1/2 recipe, as it's just me! And I used quinoa instead of barley, because my local grocery store didn't seem to have barley, or I just didn't know where it was... I will DEFINITELY make this again! SO good!

Flavor, ease

Great dish!

I used white wine instead of red, omitted the balsamic at the end, added Romano & Parmesan cheeses & it was fabulous! I had no idea that barley could be cooked like arborio. Will definitely make again!

Tasty filling winter

Pretty Good

I used arborio rice instead of the barley...and that may have been a mistake. I found the flavors to be bland and the ingredients mushy. Although I appreciate using mushrooms as a meat, I have to say I feel like the recipe was missing something like a meat.
