Toasted buckwheat tabbouleh

    35 min

    A very filling lunch or side dish. Plus it's gluten and dairy-free. Cooking the onion and garlic is optional, especially if you opt to use red onion. Minced red chilli peppers also work well in this dish.

    This is a refreshing dish that only those who are sensitive to gluten will care that it is gluten free. I added some fresh hot peppers to spice it up. Leave it to sit for an hour or so to help the flavours get acquainted. Thank you for the recipe.  -  24 Jun 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    MMMM. Really good Kasha recipe. Would be even better with tomatoes (I skipped out b/c of allergies in the family). Will definitely be making again. Thanks!  -  05 Feb 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I was very excited to make this salad.I didn't like the smell of buckwheat,when I cooked it. So, I changed my mind.  -  07 Aug 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
