Gluten Free Buckwheat Tabouli

Hummus night has to be my favorite family meal. We make two versions of low fat hummus dip (one extra spicy) and home made Tzatziki (yogurt and cucumber). Last night I decided to add a new dish to our middle east buffet and came up with my version of a wheat free tabouli. The fresh mint really makes this dish.

  • 1 cup buckwheat groats
  • 3 cups of water
  • 2 TBL olive oil
  • 2 TBL chopped mint
  • 2 TBL chopped parsley
  • .5 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped tomato
  • 1 TBL chopped bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup grated carrot
  • 1 TBL lime juice

Bring three cups water to a boil and add your buckwheat groats.  Cook on low for 10 minutes then rinse then drain and rinse with cold water to stop any further cooking.  When your buckwheat is chilled add the remaining ingredients and serve atop a bed of lettuce.

When I ran my ingredient through the nutrition calculator at http://caloriecount.about.com we came up with an A- on this wonderful sidedish!
