Pearl Barley Risotto with Yellow Courgettes Peas and Broad Beans

This summer risotto uses pearl barley in the place of rice for a nutty flavour and interesting texture. It’s light, creamy and stuffed with seasonal vegetables such as yellow courgette, sweet garden peas and broad beans, finished with unsalted butter and Parmesan cheese. The pearl barley is a healthier substitute for Arborio rice used in traditional risotto. Rich in fibre, protein and nutrients, is substantial enough to be the main course for light summer lunch.
