[1] Place 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large, heavy pot over medium-high heat. Add the mushroom chunks and cook for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring often. Remove the mushrooms from the pan and set aside. [2] Reduce heat to medium-low. Add remaining oil and the onion. Cook about 10 minutes until onion is soft. [3] While onion is cooking, bring the vegetable broth to a boil in a medium-sized saucepan. Adjust heat to maintain a gentle simmer. [4]

 Add the barley, rosemary and allspice to the onions. Raise the heat to medium-high and cook, stirring, for 1 minute, making sure the barley is evenly coated with the oil. Add the wine and cook for 5 minutes, stirring, or until the wine is nearly evaporated. [5] Add the hot broth to the barley mixture, 1/2 cup at a time; cook, stirring frequently, over medium heat until each addition of broth is absorbed into the barley before adding the next. [6] When the barley is tender and nearly all the broth has been absorbed (about 45 minutes), stir in the reserved mushrooms. Cook a few minutes longer, until the risotto reaches desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately, sprinkling with chopped parsley.
