    This risotto is delicious, filling, healthy and cheaper than most because it uses pearl barley instead of Arborio rice.

    Serves: 2 

    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 yellow onion, finely diced
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 350g butternut pumpkin, peeled and cubed
    • splash white wine
    • 200g barley, rinsed
    • 2 tablespoons fresh sage, diced
    • salt and pepper, to taste
    • 450ml chicken stock
    • 50g grated Parmesan

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:55min 

    1. Heat olive oil in a heavy-bottomed pan. Add the onion and cook over medium heat 8 minutes until translucent but not browned. Add the garlic, cubed pumpkin and the splash of wine. Cover and cook a couple of minutes.
    2. Add the barley and stir well. Cook 2 minutes. Add the sage and salt and pepper to taste. Add the stock all at once, bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer.
    3. Cook 30 minutes until liquid is absorbed and barley is tender, stirring occasionally. Serve with Parmesan.
