Buckwheat, Butterbean, and Brussel Sprout Salad

Brussel Sprouts have a bad reputation but I personally love them, especially roasted. This salad is an excellent way to use roasted sprouts because the nuttiness of the buckwheat compliments them well. This recipe is gluten free and vegan and makes a filling lunch or healthy dinner.

Cauliflower used to just be a vegetable side to your roast but now it can be the main event for any meal. I recently used it to make a pizza base but it also makes a great substitute for rice. Try this low-carb gluten free version of a classic dish, egg fried rice. So simple to make but really delicious. It makes a perfect healthy week night meal for two or as a side dish for four.

This is a refreshing and tasty salad, great for a hot summer’s day and takes minutes to prepare.
