Maple Seared Scallops with Green Buckwheat Risotto

This show-stopping dish is just as much a treat for the eyes as it is for the palate. The vivid green “risotto” is grain free thanks to the use of buckwheat. Buckwheat is actually a seed and a very good source of plant-based protein.

Tip

You can easily make this recipe vegan by substituting scallops for king oyster mushrooms cut into 1 in (2.5 cm) thick rounds.
