Mushroom and Barley Risotto

Barley doesn't contain as much starch as rice, so this "risotto," although delicious, is not quite as creamy as traditional recipes.

Price: $2.27  per serving

• Dried porcini mushrooms
• Olive oil
• Onion
• Cremini mushrooms
• Garlic
• Pearl barley (uncooked)
• Brandy
• Fat-free, lower-sodium chicken broth
• Pecorino Romano cheese
• Salt
