This salad is gluten-free and dairy-free and full of goodness, but it also looks and tastes great. For best results you really do need to cook all the grains separately, but if you make extra it will keep for a few days in the fridge. The toasted buckwheat adds a lovely crunch.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
200g buckwheat
200g red rice
95g wild rice, soaked overnight in cold water
sea salt, to taste
3 tablespoons sunflower oil
1 broccoli head, sliced on a mandoline
100g green beans, trimmed and finely sliced
100g cavolo nero leaves, shredded
1/2 bunch flat-leaf (italian) parsley, finely chopped
1/2 bunch mint, finely chopped

Dressing

Quantity Ingredient
80ml extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon apple juice concentrate
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1 teaspoon sea salt
juice of 1/2 lemon

Method

  1. Bring a saucepan of water to the boil and cook the buckwheat for 9 minutes, or until tender. Drain and set aside.
  2. Bring a saucepan of fresh water to the boil and cook the red rice for 18 minutes, then drain and transfer to a separate bowl.
  3. Finally, boil the wild rice in fresh water for 30 minutes, then drain and transfer to another bowl. Set the grains aside to cool.
  4. Reserve approximately 100 g (3½ oz) of the cooked buckwheat, then mix the remaining buckwheat with the rices in a large bowl. Season to taste with salt.
  5. To make the dressing, whisk together all the ingredients in a small bowl.
  6. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan until hot and add the reserved buckwheat. Fry the grains until they are crispy and begin to pop, about 1–2 minutes.
  7. To finish the salad, combine the grain mixture with the vegetables in a large serving bowl. Drizzle over the dressing and toss until evenly coated. Add the herbs and mix gently to combine. Garnish with the crispy buckwheat.
