How to make pearl barley risotto

Chop and shallow fry some onion and scallions

Add in some chopped peppers and continue to shallow fry until tender

I add in a tablespoon or three of fig & balsamic vinegar chutney to add some sharpness

Add in a load of chopped mushrooms and cook down until reduced

Add in your pearl barley and stir to coat in the juices

When your pan looks like this, add in a third of your stock and stir until absorbed

Add in the rest of your stock. Don't worry - it's not ruined!

Continue stirring until absorbed and looking like the above (about 30 minutes). Serve with a side salad and garlic bread, and enjoy!
