Butternut Squash Barley Risotto

This version of risotto replaces traditional Arborio rice with barley; high in soluble fiber, it helps process cholesterol in the body. We also swapped out butter for olive oil, which is high in healthy fats that promote smooth skin and hair. The cooking method remains the same so your final dish is still the creamy, comforting texture that defines a good risotto.

Ever since I found out that I need to watch high glycemic foods, I have been looking for good barley recipes (as barley is a good low glycemic substitute for rice and pasta). This recipe, as simple as it is, really maximizes the flavor with the herbs, the richness of the cheese and the slightly sweet flavor of the squash. It's better than normal risottos. I'm totally making this again.
Pros: Easy, Healthy, Will Make Again
