  • 1
    In 4-quart Dutch oven, heat oil over medium heat. Cook onion, bell pepper, mushrooms and corn in oil about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until onion is crisp-tender. Add barley, stirring about 1 minute to coat.
  • 2
    Stir in wine and 1/2 cup of the chicken broth. Cook 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until liquid is almost absorbed. Repeat with remaining broth and 3 cups water, adding 1/2 to 3/4 cup of broth or water at a time and stirring frequently, until absorbed.
  • 3
    Stir in tomatoes, 1/3 cup of the cheese, the basil and pepper. Cook until hot. Sprinkle with remaining 1/3 cup cheese.

Expert Tips

  • Risotto is traditionally made by stirring small amounts of broth into rice throughout the cook time to get the chewy texture. This recipe uses barley instead of rice. Barley is high in soluble fiber and may have the same cholesterol-lowering properties of oats.
