Light and Simple Buckwheat Salad

3 November, 2015

Buckwheat is a  great food to add into your diet for so many reasons;

  • Gluten-free, making it easy to digest
  • Stabilises blood sugar, having the longest transit time in the digestive tract
  • High proportion of all eight amino acids
  • Rich in Vit E and B-complex vitamins

Foodie Geeky Fact:despite its name, buckwheat is not actually a member of the wheat family, but a relative of rhubarb.

To cook buckwheat

Bring 1 cup of water to boil and then add 1/2 cup of buckwheat.

Reduce heat to simmer and cover.

Cook for 12-15 minutes, without stirring, all the water should be absorbed.

Remove from heat and ‘fluff’ up with a fork.


To make buckwheat salad

Add to the cooked buckwheat;

2 tablespoons of pumpkin seeds

2 tablespoons of toasted almonds – chopped

1 tablespoon of currents

2 tablespoons of chopped fresh parsley

1 sliced bell pepper, red, yellow or orange

1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced

2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons of soaked and chopped arame (seaweed)

1/2 ripe avocado, chopped

Stir altogether and season with Himalayan Rock salt
