Slow Cooker Spinach and Halloumi Pearl Barley Risotto 

Slow Cooker Spinach and Halloumi Pearl Barley Risotto 

تجارة سبائك الذهب This month the theme for the Slow Cooked Challenge over with Janice from Farmersgirl Kitchen is Rice and Grains. I’ve only tried a risotto once in the slow cooker, and it was partly extremely soggy and partly still hard, so not successful at all! So I thought I might avoid rice this time and try a different kind of grain. In the supermarket many of the grains I looked at only needed a short cooking time (things like buckwheat, couscous and so on) and so a long cooking time wouldn’t really work for them. Pearl barley though is a grain I’ve used in lamb stews I’ve cooked in casserole dishes in the oven before, so I knew it could handle a longer cooking time.

notizie forex calendario I remembered a recipe in the book Slow Cooked by Miss South (check out her blog too) for a pearl barley risotto, or orzotto (orzo is the Italian word for barley), with beetroot. I decided to take inspiration from that recipe and make a pearl barley risotto with a similar base, using the ingredients in my fridge. A bag of spinach waiting to be used up and some light halloumi with mint caught my eye so these would go in too. Read on for my recipe for slow cooker spinach and halloumi pearl barley risotto!

This risotto was delicious warm served with avocado, mozzarella and salad on the side. I’ll also be using the rest up cold in salads over the next few days.

This looks so comforting, I really fancy giving this a try. I love making risotto in the oven as it takes the faff out of it, but i’ve never tried using pearl barley…

This looks fantastic! I’m so loving the idea of slow cooker rice pud – I had a go at a sweet one today with your challenge in mind but need to attempt again to get consistency right before blogging it. Hope I can meet the deadline!


I love checking out your blog and seeing all the fab thing you can make in a slow cooker. Yes please to this risotto.


I love haolummi 😀 Will definitely try this one.
