Lentil, Barley & Butternut Risotto (PKP 4.8L & 5.7L)

Pearl Barley is usually cheaper than traditional risotto rice, and more interesting in texture too. It should be slightly chewy so don’t worry if you think it’s underdone.

The colourful squash brings this dish to life but feel free to sprinkle with some grated parmesan and rocket leaves for a little something extra.


1 tbsp olive or cooking oil

1 red onion, diced

2 garlic cloves, crushed

1 butternut squash, peeled and cut in to 1cm cubes

150g pearl barley, rinsed

150g green lentils, rinsed

750ml vegetable stock

150ml white wine

Salt and pepper (to taste)

Suitable for: Pressure King Pro 4.8L - 14-in-1 Digital Pressure CookerPressure King Pro 5.7L - 14-in-1 Digital Pressure Cooker

The Method

Select the SAUTE function, add the oil and allow to heat. Add the squash, onion and garlic and stir regularly for about 3 minutes until the onion begins to soften, then press CANCEL.

Add the rest of the ingredients and stir to combine.

Put the lid on and close the pressure valve then select the STEW/SOUP function and adjust the time to 25 minutes.

When the program has finished press CANCEL. For this recipe we recommend the QUICK RELEASE method before opening the pressure valve and removing the lid.
