The Recipe

Ingredients

Method

  1. Heat a large pot over medium heat. When hot, add 1 tablespoon of oil, as well as the butter and onions; cook onions until they soften (about 3-4 minutes).
  2. Add garlic and chili, sauté for 1-2 minutes.
  3. Add the barley and stir to coat with oil and butter mix (about 2 minutes).
  4. Add the wine and cook until it evaporates.
  5. Meanwhile, bring the stock to the boil in a saucepan, then turn down to a simmer.
  6. Ladle into the barley about 1 cup of stock at a time, and stir with a wooden spoon until this evaporates. After adding 3 cups, add the last cup one quarter at a time. (The risotto should be neither too dry nor too wet and soup-like.) It will take about 40-50 minutes to cook; allow the barley to become tender.
  7. Meanwhile, heat a frying pan over medium heat. When hot, add 1-2 teaspoons of oil and the chicken thigh fillets. Cook for a few minutes on each side until brown.
  8. Remove chicken from frying pan and add to barley mixture. (It will need at least 15 minutes in the risotto to ensure it is cooked through.)
  9. Add 1-2 teaspoons of oil to the same frying pan, over medium heat, along with half of the mushrooms and cook until soft and lightly browned.
  10. Remove mushrooms from frying pan and add to barley mixture along with zucchini.
  11. With 5-10 minutes to go, cook the remaining mushrooms and stir through the risotto along with the edamame.
  12. When cooked, add pepper, then taste and add soy sauce as necessary. Spoon into bowls. Serve with steamed broccoli and beans.
