This woodsy risotto would be at home on the menu of a gourmet restaurant. Barley gives a chewier, less creamy risotto than does rice.
Wild Mushroom Barley Risotto with Scallops
Sweet Corn and Crab Soup
To get filmy and light strands of egg, the soup should be simmering. If the soup’s at a hard boil, the egg gets scrambled and rubbery.
Scalloped One Potato, Two Potato
Scalloped potatoes are an all-time favourite. Sweet and white potatoes combine in this update of a dish that’s usually high in fat. We used stock instead of cream to reduce the fat.
Finely chopped hard-boiled egg makes this salad look like mimosa flowers, hence the name. Instead of chopping the egg, you can use a ricer if you have one. Keep the white and yolk separate for a particularly striking presentation.
