Quinoa and buckwheat together are delicious. This is a frequent dish at my house, and a great alternative to rice.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash the quinoa. See recipe #16399 for complete instructions.
  2. Toast the quinoa in a hot dry skillet until slightly browned. Set aside.
  3. Likewise with the buckwheat. Put both in a pot with the boiling water, butter, shallot, and seasonings.
  4. Keep on low heat for 15 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed.
  5. Five minutes before the end, add vegetables if you wish.

This turned out great! I used a frozen veggie mix for the corn, peas, and carrots which really saved time & made this super easy to throw together. I did use a bit of garlic salt to kick it up a notch. Thanks for a quick & easy yet super healthy side dish!!
