Spring Barley Risotto

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC loves a healthier alternative to the more traditional arborio risotto rice, barley adds iron and fiber to this fresh take on risotto. One cup of the green peas found in this dish offers more protein than a large egg.

Serves 4
2 Tablespoons oiive oil
1 cup pearled barley
2 leeks, white and green parts only, thinly sliced
½ cup white wind or water
2 cups water
Coarse salt and fresh ground pepper
14 ½ ounces vegetable broth
1 bunch of asparagus (about 1 pound) trimmed and cut in 2 inch pieces
1 box frozen peas defrosted (or fresh)
½ cup fresh grated parmesan

In a large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add Barley and leeks and cook until it begins to soften about 5 to 7 minutes. Add ½ cup wine or water and cook for another 5 minutes and water starts to evaporate. Add remaining 2 cups of water and bring to boil and season with salt and pepper. Reduce heat and simmer until liquid absorbs, about 10 minutes

Add broth and continue to cook , stirring occasionally until barley is tender and creamy, about 10 minutes. Add asparagus and cook until tender another 5 minutes. Stir in peas until heated through (if using fresh cook throughly), Add parmesan and mint and season with salt and pepper. Enjoy!

Cilantro Mint Chutney ~

Cilantro Mint Chutney ~

Cilantro Mint Chutney is Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC favorite spring time go to!

Spring is know as Kapha season through the lens of Ayurveda and we need to help ourselves by eating foods that will help lift the fog, dampness and break up mucus.

Cilantro calms our immune sensitivity to pollen. It is hypoallergenic and cools the liver.

Mint refreshes the mind, disperses dullness and lifts the fog. It breaks up mucus and fluid stagnation in the lungs, throat and sinuses. Mint and cilantro are both diuretics with the potential to drain excess water via the urinary tract. Raw onions have a cleansing effect on the liver and a laxative effect in the GI. Wild onions, a common weed, are a great addition to the spring time menu.

Cilantro Mint Chutney:

On the right path?

On the right path?

Does the path you’re on feel right?

A good indiction that something is “wrong” in your life or the path is not leading you in the “right” direction would be feeling fearful, depressed or pessimistic.

When you’re on the “right” path you will know as you will feel enthusiastic, optimistic or content. Doing what you need to do, being who you really are brings out the best in us all.

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC encourages you to sit with your thoughts, feel them, see them and most importantly “hear” them.
