  • Summary

    Risotto is typically made with Arborio rice, but pearl barley is a good substitute; it produces a dish that is similar in texture but with a nuttier taste and more fiber.

    Ingredients

    • 2 cans reduced-sodium chicken broth, (14.5 ounces each)
    • 2 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
    • Coarse salt and ground pepper
    • 1 cup pearl barley
    • 1/2 cup dry white wine
    • 1 package frozen corn kernels, (10 ounces)
    • 2 cups packed fresh basil leaves, torn into small pieces
    • 1/2 cup grated (about 2 ounces) Parmesan cheese, plus more for serving
