Balsamic Barley Orzotto

Recipe by  

"Rather than a risotto rice, I use pearled barley for this orzotto. Prep time is almost nil if you have a food processor to deal with chopping the onion for you. I like serving this with asparagus and Quorn® 'chicken'. Parmesan balsamic sauces go well alongside this. You can substitute cream for the milk if you want it a bit heavier."

Directions

  1. Heat olive oil in a pot over medium-high heat. Saute onion in hot oil until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add barley to onion; cook and stir until barley is toasted, about 2 minutes.
  2. Stir white wine into barley mixture until completely absorbed, 3 to 5 minutes. Add water, balsamic vinegar, and vegetable bouillon to barley; bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover the pot, and simmer until liquid is absorbed, about 10 minutes. Remove pot from heat.
  3. Mix milk, Parmesan cheese, and basil into barley.
