Toasted quinoa and buckwheat salad – gluten free, dairy free, vegan

DSCF1140mod

It is a little more of a challenge to follow a free from diet if you are vegan and rely on pulses in your diet – I am going to attempt to produce more recipes to facilitate a good variety of foods for you to choose, during the exclusion phase, here is one recipe – but check out the links below for others.

Ingredients

25 g Mixed sunflower and pumpkin seeds

25 g Walnuts

25 g Pine nuts

1/2 Teaspoon of smoked paprika

1/2 Teaspoon of cinnamon

1/4 Teaspoon of ginger

1  dessert spoon of garlic infused oil

1/2 Lemon

2 Carrots

1 Red pepper

150 g Red quinoa

80 g Buckwheat

Spray oil

Method

Add the spices to the garlic infused oil and mix into the chopped nuts and mixed seeds.

Toast for 5-10 minutes in an oven – watch this closely as it can easily burn.

Remove from the oven and cool.

Add the buckwheat and quinoa to a pan and add some water to cover and simmer till soft.

Cool.

Chop the pepper and carrot into medium pieces and spay with oil and roast in the oven.

Mix ingredients together and add lemon juice.

Check the labels of the spices to ensure they are free of contamination with gluten if you have coeliac disease

Serves 4-6
