buckwheat tabbouleh

I love the lebanese salad tabbouleh and it works brilliantly with buckwheat rather than bulgar wheat. Buckwheat is a gluten free grain despite the name so this salad is a fabulous gluten free alternative to tabbouleh. This might seem a lot of parsley - but tabbouleh is traditionally a parsley salad with a small amount of bulgar wheat. Parsley is packed with vitamin C and antioxidants and so very good for us.

Green buckwheat salad

I first started using buckwheat in a salad after trying the delicious pink tahini buckwheat salad from Ceri Jones of Natural Kitchen Adventures, which is featured in her app. This green buckwheat salad has been inspired by Cert’s pink salad! Buckwheat is a gluten free seed and is very useful in a gluten-free diet as it gives a grain-like texture. For the health benefits see tip below. Serve this salad as it is or you can add crumbled feta cheese if you want to increase the protein content.
