It’s autumn and I’m dreaming up all kinds of cosy meals but risotto has got to be up there on the comfort scale right?
My pearl barely risotto combines two of my favourite flavours; squash and mushrooms. Sweet and oozing squash and earthy mushrooms – so good!
And to take it to the next level, a good glug of truffle oil and crunchy toasted hazelnuts. My kind of autumnal comfort food!
– I really like using chewy pearl barely for a change but arborio rice is also absolutely delicious.
– Feel free to omit the squash and double the amounts of mushrooms for a delicious mushroom option.
– The same goes for the squash if you don’t like mushrooms. I would use a larger squash and roast a quarter of it to top.
I hope you enjoy, much love Niki xxx
