Barley and Mushroom Risotto

This vitamin, fiber, protein rich ancient grain is something I highly recommend you incorporate into your repertoire. Such a lovely substitution for rice or potatoes. It pairs so well with wild game! Especially when you add some spices, onions, mushrooms and cheese. Enjoy this fresh take on the ordinary weeknight side dish.
