I asked on my facebook page for what to make with the beetroot from my veg box and Allie from Allie in Wonderland suggested the Beetroot Barley Risotto recipe from Domestic Sluttery.
When dinner was still cooking an hour after our intended eating time, Grom did point out that they can't be that much of a domestic slut as they published a recipe that takes over an our of preparation and cooking time. We were hungry and we had the other problem to deal with.
Sometimes when I try out new recipes, they don't exactly work. in Horrific types of ways. I've thrown away meals or tried to struggle through them when they obviously went wrong. Grom is much better than I am. I usually end up with a sandwich but he struggles through them.
But it was ok!
I have to admit I tweaked the recipe a little bit. I just couldn't resist! I used fry light spray instead of butter to make it more slimming world friendly. And I used fresh mushrooms instead of dried as it is what I had in. But it was yum! We served it with Linda McCartney Rosemary and red onion sausages.
