I've heard that the green buckwheat is super healthy, gluten-free, and is basically a whole protein.
Do you have any cool recipes for it?
So far I've made only vegan pancakes using the green buckwheat, and it was great, but I want to try other different recipes.
Here's the recipe for the vegan green buckwheat pancakes-
Ingredients: 1 cup of green buckwheat, washed well and soaked overnight in water 1/2 cup of the water that you soaked the buckwheat in
3 spoons of dates syrup
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 tbsp baking powder
1tbsp coconut oil
Just put all the ingredients in a food processor and grind for about 30 seconds.
heat a good non-stick frying pan.
lower the flame to medium heat.
pour a bit of the mixture, and fry for about 2 minutes.
flip the pancake and fry the other side for about 30 seconds.
These days i usually just use it for porridge for breakfast. I have a 710mL thermos that I put 100g of grain in, then fill with boiling water. I do that before bed and when I get up in the morning I have perfect, creamy porridge. I use all different kinds of (pseudo)grains. Buckwheat works as well as any of them.
I did something tasty a couple weeks ago. I'd been working hard all weekend and not eating enough, so I started craving something sweet. I made pancakes with buckwheat and oats, ground up in a coffee grinder to get flour. I used half a cup of buckwheat flour, added a heaping spoonful of carob powder, and filled the rest of the cup with oat flour. Couple pinches of baking soda, water, and a splash of elderberry vinegar. To top the pancakes I crushed up some cherries in carob molasses. The juice from the cherries made it runny, so it soaked into the pancakes. Kinda black forest cakey.
I've made tabbouleh with it, which was good.
In my raw food days, I sprouted it, dehydrated it, and used it as a base for granola.
I saw a recipe for buckwheat morel risotto that gave me tasty ideas.
