Tahini Buckwheat Noodles with Edamame RecipeCredit: Lisa Guy
Tahini is a fantastic source of protein and rich in the essential amino acid methionine, which aids liver function by reducing fat deposits in the liver. This popular sesame paste also provides plenty of healthy unsaturated fats and vitamin E, which help promote heart health. Buckwheat is a fibre-rich seed used just like a grain. It is gluten-free and not related to wheat.
