DIRECTIONS

  • Bring the stock to the boil in a large pan, add the barley and simmer until done, about 40 minutes. If you want you can add some chopped mushrooms to this for the last 5-10 minutes.
  • Microwave, boil or roast the pumpkin until soft. I usually roast mine with a few sprigs of thyme for extra flavour.
  • Put the cooked pumpkin together with the butter into a blender and process to a puree.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Add the puree to the barley and season again with salt and pepper.
  • Just before serving mix the parmesan into the 'risotto'.
  • Serve hot with fresh crusty bread.
