This simple side dish highlights two fad-free nutrition concepts: The buckwheat adds whole-grain nutrients to your meal with its bountiful fiber and phytonutrients, while a prudent amount of spicy infused oil keeps added fat (and calories) at a minimum. Neutral-flavored canola oil smoothes out nutty sesame oil; both plant-based oils have healthful unsaturated fats. Use leftover oil in stir-fries or as part of an Asian-inspired salad dressing.
