RECIPE: Super grain buddha bowl with rainbow carrots

I am clearing out my pantry and somewhere to the back I found some dry spelt and dry buckwheat. Seeing that it was not a huge amount, I thought I would throw them together into a buddha bowl! This bowl is packed with fibre and veggies, and the sesame and soy sauce add a nice…
