1
tablespoon olive oil
1
medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
1
medium bell pepper, coarsely chopped (1 cup)
2
cups chopped fresh mushrooms (4 oz)
1
cup Green Giant™ Steamers™ Niblets® frozen corn
1
cup uncooked medium pearled barley
1/4
cup dry white wine or Progresso® chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
2
cups roasted vegetable stock or Progresso® chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
3
cups water
1 1/2
cups grape tomatoes, cut in half (if large, cut into quarters)
2/3
cup shredded Parmesan cheese
3
tablespoons chopped fresh or 1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
1/2
teaspoon pepper
  1. In 4-quart Dutch oven, heat oil over medium heat. Cook onion, bell pepper, mushrooms and corn in oil about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until onion is crisp-tender. Add barley, stirring about 1 minute to coat.
  2. Stir in wine and 1/2 cup of the vegetable stock. Cook 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until liquid is almost absorbed. Repeat with remaining stock and 3 cups water, adding 1/2 to 3/4 cup of stock or water at a time and stirring frequently, until absorbed.
  3. Stir in tomatoes, 1/3 cup of the cheese, the basil and pepper. Cook until thoroughly heated. Sprinkle with remaining 1/3 cup cheese.

Did You Know?
Risotto is traditionally made by stirring small amounts of broth into rice throughout the cook time to get a chewy texture. This recipe uses barley instead of rice.
Did You Know?
Barley is high in soluble fiber and may have the same cholesterol-lowering properties of oats.
