This is one of my favourite 5 minutes dishes. Just mix everything, take whatever veggies you have (the more colour the more antioxidants) and cook some buckwheat pasta. Mix everything and voila`; there´s your dinner! Just because the dinner goes so fast to make that doesn´t mean that the taste is less. I would say in this case that it´s the other way around. The walnuts with the garlic the hot pepper, the cold pressed oliveoil…it´s hard to find a better mixture I promise. Try it out with cooked quinoa, or just as a spread on a piece of bread – it really tastes amazing!
