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
Hearty Mushroom Barley Pilaf
Barley is high in fibre and low on the glycemic index, making it a great substitute for the usual white rice used in pilaf. Try this side dish with a roast instead of potatoes or rice.
Tofu Vegetable Lasagna
Lasagna makes a hearty main course. The fussy part is always the layering- the preparation for this meatless version is easy, and once it’s in the oven, you can put your feet up!
Swiss Chard And Bean Soup
This hearty main-course soup is packed with lots of good-for-you vegetables and beans. Serve with crusty bread.
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.
Spinach-Rice Phyllo Pie
A delicious and stunning buffet centrepiece, this delicious phyllo creation is substantial enough for meat eaters.
