This recipe is actually inspired by a take-away place in Melbourne, where they sell a vegan grain and seed salad which I sometimes have as my lunch when I’m in the CBD. I changed a couple of things though as I added barley and buckwheat kernels but left out farro. I also added Pomegranate as I think it adds a nice colour and freshness to the dish.
This Super Grain and Seed Salad is really healthy, delicious and filling and makes a great side dish for a buffet or vegan bbq and is a very yummy in a vegetable/buddha bowl.
I hope you enjoy this recipe and if you do make it, please tag us @nothangryanymore on Instagram.
