A heat winter dish – Pearl Barley is making a little bit of a come again in the meanwhile. I keep in mind it from the lamb soup my Mom use to make, however right here I pair it with roasted rooster items, brown and wild mushrooms and a few peas for color. You may blanch some beans should you choose, or if you’d like it to be a bit extra elegant, use artichoke hearts, however I believe the dish seems higher with a splash of color. I’ve used a mixture of mushrooms as I believe the wild mushrooms give a beautiful flavour, however should you choose you can also make this with simply a mixture of brown and white mushrooms.
In case you have left over rooster, you’ll be able to simply blanch it in some scorching water, and add it to the sauce for a extra risotto kind dish. Serve with some greens, as potatoes or rice aren’t wanted.
