Enter this recipe. Mushroom and barley 'risotto' I love to use dried porcini mushrooms with fresh mushrooms when making this barley ‘risotto’.

mushroom and barley 'risotto'

Or any mushroom risotto in fact. The flavour adds such depth, and the water that re-hydrates the mushrooms makes a lovely intense stock. This is one of the recipes I developed for Nomu for their May recipe mailer, and its perfect Winter comfort food. I have used a selection of mixed exotic mushrooms to make up the fresh component of the dish. I love the meaty texture of shiitake, and adore the look of enoki.

I have used barley here because I love the nutty taste, but you can make a traditional risotto rice, just reduce the cooking time. Dont be afraid to add butter, Mascarpone or cream at the end. Fauzia's Kitchen Fun. First prepare the tomato sauce.

Quinoa Vegetarian Meatballs {GF} - American Heritage Cooking

I have been using it in everything from salad (coming soon!) To these Quinoa Vegetarian Meatballs. I just can’t get enough! I used to think of homemade, Italian meatballs as an occasional indulgence, but these quinoa meatballs are so easy to pull together and healthy that they are sure to become a regular dish instead!

I take the extra step of pan searing before baking them to give them the nice crunchy, seared exterior that is characteristic of a traditional Italian meatball. Mushroom and butternut risotto – {vegan, gluten-free} Even tough Fall is not my favourite time of the year, there is some food that makes you forget about the cold, the rain and the dark days.

Mushroom and butternut risotto – {vegan, gluten-free}

Comfort food of course like chocolate, but also the typical Fall vegetables like mushrooms and butternut. A typical risotto is made with parmesan cheese and white wine, but for this version I wanted to try a vegan option. So no wine and no cheese, this gave me the opportunity to use the nutritional yeast i bought a few weeks. Nutritional yeast is often used in the vegan kitchen as a replacement for cheese, but is also packed with vitamin B12. 3 cups mushrooms1 butternut2½ cups vegetable broth1 teaspoon sea salt, plus more to taste3 tablespoon olive oil, divided5 large cloves garlic½ cup finely chopped onions1 teaspoon dried thyme1 cup uncooked Arborio rice1 ½ tablespoon nutritional yeastBlack pepper, to taste.

My sister is seventeen months pregnant right now - kidding, but that's how she feels. She told me they've been stock-piling easy, meals they can simply reheat or pop in the oven once the baby arrives. This got me thinking about healthy, baked, single-pan recipes. I threw this together the other night using a bunch of things I had on hand - brown rice, spinach, black olives, crumbled tofu, a bit of cheese, pine nuts, and a few eggs. Simply the best!

Savory Rice & Cheese Cake Recipe with Spinach & Roasted Red Peppers. I’ve discovered that winter running pants are not terribly forgiving. It appears that mixing spandex with holiday eating is a very misled notion. It’s kind of like drinking while dating. It sounds like a good idea at the time, but it never ends well. That’s one of the benefits of running at 5:30 in the morning. It’s so dark that no one can witness my spandex offenses. After a holiday weekend of some serious eating, I’m feeling the need to consume nothing but salads and light soups for the rest of my life.
