What I love most about this recipe is it’s so adaptable, use any vegetables you have lying around. In this case I used mushrooms and red peppers.
I used buckwheat as it is not only really yummy but also a great alternative to traditional rice for those who cannot eat gluten.

I like to serve my vegetable buckwheat risotto with salad leaves, half an avocado, squeezed lemon and a sprinkle of chia seeds. It also tastes amazing as a side dish to your favourite protein. I like to make a big batch so I have lots of leftovers to enjoy during the week.
