I had never tried buckwheat until last night, I'm always up for trying new things- especially if they're healthy! Also I've been having that insatiable hunger that comes with your body trying to fix itself after illness so I've been looking for something hearty to fill me. I figured protein + fiber was the key so was praying that this meal would do it.

Mixed Green Sprout Salad with Dijon Dressingwatercress
water or oil
- combine ingredients
- make dressing by combining dijon mustard, water or oil, pepper (I like mine fairly thick and prefer to use water but its your choice!)
I hope you all try new things too- its so worth it when you keep finding things you love and can expand your cooking resources. I know some people like to stick to the things they know are 'safe' but I believe stepping out of your comfort zone is a good thing! (even if it is scary) so if you tend to eat the same things you always have just start with something small, give one new ingredient a go next shop!
All the best xxx
