What to cook with buckwheat

Despite all its benefits, buckwheat does not contain all essential amino acids. Vegetable proteins are absorbed worse than proteins from meat, fish, poultry, eggs, and dairy products.

For example, if proteins from plant foods are absorbed by 70%, then animal proteins are absorbed by 95-96%. Therefore, it is useful to supplement and enrich buckwheat porridge with animal protein. ⠀

Children can eat buckwheat porridge with eggs, fish, poultry, and even cottage cheese. There are a lot of options. ⠀

It is useful to combine cereal with vegetables, for example, cabbage: sea, broccoli and sauerkraut. This combination will be rich in dietary fiber, which acts as a natural sorbent, with plenty of vitamins and minerals.

The water in which buckwheat is cooked absorbs all the nutrients of this cereal. Therefore, during cooking, it is necessary to correctly calculate the amount of water so as not to drain it. Ideal proportions: 1:2.5 (1 part buckwheat and 2.5 parts water).

Buckwheat is used not only to make porridge but also in baking to replace wheat flour. Buckwheat does not contain gluten. Thus, it is the best option for people who suffer from gluten intolerance.

What dishes can be prepared: ⠀

Boil buckwheat porridge, cut tomatoes and feta cheese into small cubes, and if you wish, you can dilute the taste with olives: this will make it taste like a Greek salad, but much more satisfying.

Even gourmets will like buckwheat risotto with mushrooms. Given that buckwheat and mushrooms cook quickly, this recipe will help out when you want something tasty and are short on time.

Cook some buckwheat and make a salad with peaches, blueberries, pomegranates, arugula and walnuts. This refreshing salad can be served as a snack or as a second breakfast. ⠀

Pumpkin, chickpeas, turmeric and buckwheat: this is what an unusual stew looks like, which is incredibly healthy and nutritious. This dish will have a positive effect on the immune system. ⠀
