Ben Warren's nationwide tour: The Hormone Secret

Buckwheat Salad with Chorizo and Feta

This delicious recipe is a delicious and tasty protein rich salad that can be whipped up in minutes.
It's also gluten free, dairy free option, egg free and sugar free. It serves 2. Ingredients


  • 1 cup raw buckwheat groats (preferably soaked and rinsed)
  • 2 cups chicken stock and 1 cup of water (or just 3 cups of water)
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 2-3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup fresh herbs (parsley, basil, mint)
  • 2 spring onions sliced
  • 50g feta (omit for dairy free)
  • 1 cup of watercress or rocket
  • Salt and pepper 
  • 1 tsp coconut oil 
  • 2-4 good quality, gluten free chorizo sausages or other good quality sausages (you can change out the protein in this salad to anything you like).


1. Bring stock/water to the boil in a medium saucepan and then pour in buckwheat.

2. Simmer for 10-15 minutes until buckwheat is soft and cooked through but not mushy (if you haven’t pre-soaked your buckwheat it will take 15 minutes).

3. Slice chorizo and heat coconut oil in a frying pan.  Cook chorizo for a few minutes in a hot pan until just beginning to brown.

4. Drain buckwheat, set aside to cool and then stir through all other ingredients and top with sliced chorizo.
