Pearl Barley Risotto

Pearl barley risotto is tremendous. I actually think I prefer it to rice risotto and it’s definitely a lot lighter and healthier. Obviously you can adapt this recipe, just leave out the bacon, and ham and replace the chicken stock with veg stock to make it veggie, it’s totally grand with just the butternut squash. […]

Turkey Meatballs and Butternut Squash Spaghetti

I’ve got a hand spiralizer rather than one that sits on the worktop so I wasn’t sure until I tried this dish whether I could use it for butternut squash.  Turns out it works if you chop the squash into carrot size pieces but that the ‘spaghetti’ you get from it will be a bit […]
