Beet barley “risotto”

Barley risotto

Date: July 27th, 2011


Modifications: We had five smaller beets, so we used them all and I just added a little more barley to make the whole dish bigger. I also added some frozen shredded pork that we had to add some protein.

Time to table: 1 hour

Servings: About 5 adults

Ben: Like

Erin: Like

Annie: Dislike

Notes: Annie, again, not a fan. She has been seeming less interested in our meals lately, which is a bummer for her and us. Unfortunately we can’t have spaghetti every night (until winter at least), so she’ll have to learn to deal. Erin and I agreed that the lemon flavor in this dish was a bit much, if I make it again I will for sure cut back on the lemon juice in the beet mixture.
