Baked Barley Risotto With Butternut Squash

Let’s begin!

 

Here’s what you’ll need:

 

  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 small butternut squash ( about 11/2 pounds) — peeled, seeded, and cut into 1-inch pieces (about 3 cups)
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1 cup pearl barley
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • 3 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 5 ounces baby spinach
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan (2 ounces), plus more for serving
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

Alright Chef Boyardee, let’s get cookin’ !

FIRST STEP: Heat oven to 400° F. Heat the oil in a Dutch oven or large oven-safe saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the squash, onion, ¾ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper and cook, stirring often, until the onion begins to soften, 4 to 6 minutes.

SECOND STEP: Add the barley to the vegetables and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the wine and cook, stirring, until evaporated, about 1 minute. Add the broth and bring to a boil; cover the pot and transfer it to oven. Bake until the barley is tender, 35 to 40 minutes.

FINAL STEP: Stir in the spinach, Parmesan, and butter. Serve with additional Parmesan.
