Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 sticks of celery, finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 200g pearl barley
  • 800ml hot reduced-salt veg stock
  • 2 x 390g cartons chopped tomatoes
  • ½ tsp sugar
  • 5 sprigs of rosemary, leaves only, finely chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 25g whole almonds
  • 125g ricotta

Step by step

  1. Heat the oil in a large, heavy-based pan. Add the onion and celery; cook gently for 8-10 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes.

  2. Stir in the barley; cook for 1 minute. Add 600ml of the stock, tomatoes, sugar, rosemary and bay leaf; bring to the boil. Simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the rest of the stock and cook for 20-25 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, heat a dry frying pan, add the almonds and shake over a low heat until toasted. Cool slightly; chop.

    Tip

    Barley contains beta-glucans, a soluble fibre that can help lower blood cholesterol levels. You need to eat 3g beta-glucans a day to benefit, and this recipe contains 2g per serving.

  4. Season the risotto and serve in bowls with the ricotta and toasted almonds.
