Had this for a big party everyone loved it.
4 Stars
Very small portion, especially risotto, but I liked what I got. Is Munchery cutting back on portion size? There seems to be a trend here...
4 Stars
Loved this dish. Barley was terrific. Asparagus arrived well cooked instead of crunchy. Hence only 4 stars. Would prefer asparagus arrive still very crispy. Will order again.
5 Stars
Wow, I didn't read the ingredients, and didn't know it had barley underneath. What a perfect light dinner!
5 Stars
Seriously awesome at meal I've had ever! Asparagus was perfectly cooked, with a little crunch. The risotto was rich and tasty. Highly recommend this dish!

Very good and a really filling and satisfying vegetarian main course for a non-vegetarian

I loved this dish. The texture was perfect and the flavor was divine. I wanted a salad that was sold out - I need to plan further ahead. I have noticed that some of the veggie dishes have tons of salt - I will have to pass on those.

Risotto was very dry and unflavorful
5 Stars
Delicious! Asparagus were large and crisp and reheated nicely. Risotto was packed with flavor and was a perfect accompaniment. Will order again.
4 Stars
Different but tasty. Not filling, tho. May order again.
5 Stars
I really like this dish and have ordered it twice. My anti-olive husband steered clear of the pungent tapenade, which was easy to do in light of the way it's packaged.

Kind of bland. :(

Perfect!

This was a tasty snack, not an entree. 6 spears of asparagus and about 3 tablespoons of risotto. I had to eat some cereal after so I wouldn't go to bed hungry. The point of getting dinner delivered is so I'm not stuck eating cereal for dinner.

one of our favorite dishes...but, only got 3 asparagus and a small portion of rice, not enough for one meal....
4 Stars
Very tasty, but a very small portion size.
3 Stars
Tasty, the condiment was flavorful.
4 Stars
Really liked the asparagus part of the dish, not so much the risotto. Wasn't loving the texture or flavor, kind of dry. The asparagus was fab, wish there was more of it! Didn't use the chunky sauce it came with.
2 Stars
This was disappointing. Even for barley, it doesn't bear the faintest resemblance to risotto. It's heavy and gummy and, once you reheat it, the asparagus is overcooked.
4 Stars
loved the charred flavor of the asparagus and bite of the barley. would love the recipe. only issue is the portion size....wanted more! perhaps a smaller container wouldve deemphasized the lack of volume or perhaps replating to fill the empty space.
5 Stars
Really delicious, the asparagus was cooked perfectly and the tapenade and lemon were a great addition.
4 Stars
Very flavorful dish, with nice nutty textures. Not a lot of asparagus.
5 Stars
Outstanding! So incredibly tasty. Chef Batson never disappoints. Her veggie options are great.
5 Stars
Can we give it 10 stars? The tapenade was a great addition and gave it an extra "umph". Everything was perfect.

This dish was delicious! Please please include it on the menu more often.

It was wonderful.
5 Stars
Really well composed dish and great ingredients. I'm a meat eater but have ordered this twice as my main entree. Lovely.
4 Stars
Really liked the flavor on this one, nice charred bits on the asparagus and a great creamy (nicely offset by the tapenade) barley risotto.
5 Stars
That risotto is delicious. The whole dish was great. Asparagus perfectly cooked, still a bit crunchy. Yum.
4 Stars
Great flavors, not super filling, but overall great dish.
5 Stars
Perfect texture/crunchiness. Risotto was amazingly rich. Best dish so far

I love everything about this dish.

Awesome dish. We ate it as a side to fish, but it could be a meal in itself!
5 Stars
I didn't receive the lemon to squeeze, but the dish was so, so good! I love this one!
