I love tabouli but can't eat wheat so this buckwheat version is perfect! Buckwheat is technically a fruit not a grain and is a good source of B vitamins, Zinc and Iron.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place water in a medium sized saucepan and bring to the boil.
  2. Add crumbled stock cube, or powder, and the buckwheat kernels.
  3. Simmer for 20 minutes or until buckwheat is tender.
  4. Drain, discard stock.
  5. Place the buckwheat in a large bowl.
  6. Add the parsley, tomatoes, lemon juice, olive oil and garlic.
  7. Toss to combine and serve.

Delicious! I never knew buckwheat could taste so good. I rarely get to eat tabbouleh since it almost always includes onions. It's weird but I feel like this recipe was created just for me :-) Thank you.
