SHRIMP, ZUCCHINI & SWEET CORN RISOTTO

72

A celebration of garden fresh tomatoes, zucchini and sweet corn. Everything that says summer! This Shrimp, Zucchini and Sweet Corn Risotto features barley for a nutty and sweet texture. I love barley salads – they have substance since barley tends to be a little chewier than your typical Arborio rice risotto.

4
4 cups low sodium vegetable broth
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 large zucchini, chopped (about 2 cups)
1½ cups chopped sweet onion
