Pearl barley and broccoli risotto

Serves 1
  • £14.00
Instead of the usual Arborio rice, our chefs opted to use pearl barley for a dish as creamy as traditional risotto, but with a more toothsome texture and a bigger nutritional payoff. Pearl barley may not technically be a whole grain, but it is still a great source of fibre. The tangy feta, broccoli and basil oil bring out the best of this dish.
