Did someone mention Green Garlic????
Barley 'Risotto' Style, with Green Garlic
1 tbs butter
2 – 3 green garlic
1/2 cup barley
1/4 (60ml) cup white wine
3/4 (200ml) cup chicken stock
1/4 (1oz, 30gr) cup fresh Parmesan cheese, grated
Melt butter over medium-high heat in small saucepan. Add garlic and sauté for 2 minutes. Add barley, wine, stock and bring to a simmer on medium heat. Turn heat to low and simmer until done, stirring occasionally. All stock will be absorbed. Stir in cheese. Remove from heat and serve. It should be loose and creamy, if not add a bit more stock.
