All the wonderful flavour of a traditional rice risotto, but made with barley!

1 cup onion, finely chopped
2 cups sliced, fresh, white mushrooms

2 2/3 cups vegetable broth
3 medium tomatoes, quartered, de-seeded, then chopped

½ tsp oregano
½ tsp crushed rosemary
¼ tsp salt (I use sea salt)
¼ tsp black pepper

1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 Tbsp fresh, chopped parsley
I Tbsp olive oil *optional

In a skillet or frying pan – over medium heat – heat cooking oil.
Add onion – cook for 5-10 minutes until softened, stirring often.
Add mushrooms and garlic. Cook 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms are softened.
