Barley, Porcini & Asparagus Risotto

Written by

Barley, Porcini & Asparagus Risotto
Serves 4
Wholesome and earthy, this is a new take on a comforting mushroom risotto

This tasty dish uses pearl barley rather than rice to create the foundation of a ‘risotto’. Barley has long been renowned as a strengthening grain eaten by athletes in ancient Greek and Roman times. A rich source of magnesium, B vitamin Niacin, maltose and dietary fiber, eating barley helps balance insulin levels, protect against cardiovascular risk, lower cholesterol, maintain a healthy colon and fuel liver and muscle cells.

A Raw Soup of Garden Greens with a hint of citrus
Zinging with taste, this soup is an organic garden in a bowl

Harnessing the vitamins, minerals and live enzymes of freshly picked vegetables, adding layers with the citrus juices, miso and garlic, and softening the final flavour with coconut water and apple, delicious meets nutritious in this beautifully deep green soup.

Ideal as an energy-boosting lunch or a palate-awakening starter before your evening main, this easy-to-digest dish is a tonic for your body, mind and skin.

The awards program selects winners based on their achievements and strengths in the hospitality industry. All winners of the 2016 Restaurant & Bar Awards are subject to the same rigorous assessment criteria, carried out by the experienced in-house professionals as well as a number of celebrity guest judges. This ensures that only the most deserving teams, businesses and individuals walk away with one of these prestigious accolades.

“Imagine the struggle with life slipping away, replaced with the caress of warm waves, soothing silence, hypnotic breath, dance-like movement and… deep gratitude. This is water healing.”

A Balinese Boreh is a centuries-old healing recipe of herbs and exotic spices traditionally used as a "body revival" in the form of a mask and scrub. “Bo” in Balinese means “ready”, and “reh” comes from the Balinese word for blood, ”rah”, so Boreh literally brings your body to life.
