Amazing Buckwheat Recipes You Will Want To Try

1. Buckwheat, Banana And Passion Fruit Pancakes

These fluffy pancakes are the perfect way to start your day. The buckwheat flour is healthier than normal flour and is gluten free. The fresh fruit topping is tasty and full of vitamins.

You can experiment with different fruit toppings and also yogurts and seeds to go on top of your pancakes. 

2. Seeded Buckwheat Cookies

These delicious cookies are made with healthy and wholesome ingredients like pecans, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, and buckwheat flour.

They are flavored with vanilla extract to make them sweet and are perfect to enjoy as an afternoon snack. Make sure you roll the dough out between two sheets of parchment paper to stop it from sticking to the rolling pin. 

3. Warm Buckwheat And Beetroot Salad

Toasting the buckwheat helps to bring out the nutty, earthy flavor which goes really well with the beetroot. The wilted spinach leaves are high in iron and other nutrients and when you cut into the fried egg the golden yolk spills over the salad.

This is a Polish recipe and is traditionally served with a cup of sour milk that contains lots of probiotics which are good for your gut. 

4. Broccoli, Buckwheat And Almond Salad

The thing that stands out about this salad is the exciting combination of textures. The florets of broccoli are shredded into crumbs that are mixed with the buckwheat and almonds.

The stalks are cooked until tender along with some of the kelp, and the rest of the kelp is added raw. There is a mustard and chili dressing with raisins and capers and a delicious almond sauce. 

5. Buckwheat With Mushrooms

Both buckwheat and mushrooms have an earthy flavor so they work really well together in this recipe. Mushrooms are also high in protein, just like buckwheat, and the buckwheat is high in fiber.

That means that this recipe is very fulfilling and will keep you feeling full for a long time. The ingredients are cheap so you can enjoy this meal even if you are on a budget. 

6. Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies With Buckwheat And Ginger

If you are on a gluten free diet then you can still enjoy a warm, chewy chocolate chip cookie fresh from the oven. This recipe uses buckwheat flour instead of wheat flour, which makes these cookies naturally gluten free.

The ginger creates an interesting depth of flavor which makes these cookies a perfect winter treat.

Cauliflower soup is healthy and makes the perfect meal for a colder winter day when you want something comforting and nourishing.
