     Asparagus Barley Risotto

Category   Entrees - Maindishes
Sub Category   None
Servings   6-8

10 cups chicken broth
4 tbsp olive oil
2 large onions, finely chopped
8 garlic cloves, finely chopped
3 cups barley
2 and 1/2 cups dry white wine
2 and 1/4 lbs asparagus cut diagonally into 2-inch pieces
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 and 1/2 cups freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Warm chicken broth in a saucepan over low heat. In large saute pan heat 2 tbsp olive oil over medium-high heat. Add onions and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook for another 1-2 minutes.
Add barley and cook, stirring constantly, for about 2-3 minutes. Add wine and cook until the liquid is absorbed.
Add the warmed broth 1/2 cup at a time, stirring occasionally after each addition, and waiting until it is absorbed before adding more.
Meanwhile, in another saute pan, heat 2 tbsp olive oil over medium heat. Saute asparagus until bright green and slightly tender, about 3-4 minutes. Once the broth is completely absorbed into the risotto, add asparagus, season to taste with salt and pepper, and stir in parmesan. Serve immediately.
