This has become a staple summer recipe. Since making it the first time back in June, I have made it to serve with dinner every single week since. You could say I’m hooked. Seriously, it’s fast, easy and tastes delicious. More importantly, everyone in the family approves. Yay veggies! 

BIG TASTE WITH FEW INGREDIENTS 

This recipe is just one of those great quick recipes you can throw together and wow your dinner guests. The ingredients might be simple, but the toasted buckwheat really makes this recipe stand out. Just don’t count on leftovers. It’s hard to not finish the entire bowl in one sitting.
