Lentil, Barley & Butternut Risotto (Pressure King Pro 5L)
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 5.7L 12-in-1 Pressure Cooker
