Buckwheat isn’t actually a grain and isn’t related to wheat, so is a good gluten free option.
Why it’s so good
The vinaigrette, just softens the vegetables enough the remove the ‘raw edge’, but allows the them to maintain their crunchy goodness.
Gluten free and packed with flavour.
Vata: Add some delicious, naturally salty sea vegetables such as Dulse, Wakame or Sea Spaghetti.
