Peanut Buckwheat Salad & Bob’s Red Mills Giveaway!

Peanut Buckwheat Salad with Chicken and Vegetables

Today I’m sharing a delicious peanut buckwheat salad with chicken and vegetables, and a Bob’s Red Mills Giveaway!

Spring is the perfect time for grain salads, perfect for bringing along to parties or picnics (also for just enjoying at home for a healthy dinner) and this one uses buckwheat from Bob’s Red Mill and is coated in a delicious peanut sauce that uses Stonyfield organic yogurt!

Buckwheat is a super nutritious grain that can be used as a substitute for rice and when cooked transforms into a mild-yet-nutty flavored grain. And you know what highlights a nutty grain? A yogurt-peanut sauce!

After creating the peanut yogurt sauce you’ll cook chicken and the veggies in the sauce, cook the buckwheat, and then coat the buckwheat with more of the peanut yogurt sauce and then serve together, yum!

    I’d love to try the amaranth because I heard it’s high in protein (from fellow vegetarian Karis) and I love grain salads for my summer work lunches!

    I have yet to try Farro!! But I would be up for it! My favorite grain salad is a simple Caprese Salad made with couscous or quinoa! Such a flavorful, summer salad!

      I have never tried Amaranth either and have been really wanting to try it, I was also figuring out how to say it ‘aranth’ is what I thought it was lol, but it’s really ‘am-aranth’ ! Thanks for entering :)
