  • Summary

    This risotto recipe is a great way to finish off your day with a decadent dinner that is only a fraction of the cost. The barley makes the dish heartier, and the peas make it healthier. Also, you don’t have to follow Leanne Brown’s twist on risotto; you can make it your own by adding different veggies or switching up the cheese.

    • 1 Tbsp butter
    • 1 onion, chopped
