Buckwheat is a wonderful gluten-free grain that can be enjoyed in a number of dishes. Buckwheat is a fruit seed related to rhubarb and sorrel. It’s a great source of protein, iron and magnesium while being low in fat. We share two ways to cook it below – one sweet, one savoury. Both dishes promise to warm you up this winter!
Try this twist on breakfast by using hulled buckwheat instead of porridge oats in our Cashew Nut Buckwheat Porridge. Our innovating cashew milk powder used in this recipe is a great alternative to milk, and gives the porridge a nutty edge. Experiment with adding different toppings and sweeten to your desire!
For a savoury dinner try our Roasted Sweet Potato Mushroom Buckwheat Risotto. It’s vegan-friendly as it uses our great value nutritional yeast (with vitamin B12) which gives this dish it’s cheesy flavour. A hearty, nutritious, warming dinner for this time of year!
As we mentioned in our newsletter last week, we’re always working to offer you our best possible price on the foods you love. We call it responsible pricing (read more here) If you want to see proof of this, then fill your basket with the ingredients for your recipe of choice on our site. Then fill a basket with products of the same quality and variety from other companies.
We believe our total checkout price will be less when compared to other companies, even after discount codes have been applied. If it’s not, let us know and we will work on trying to change it!
This basket of ingredients will make about 6 portions of the buckwheat risotto, each portion serving 2 to 3 people. And you’ll still have plenty of kitchen essentials left for your kitchen cupboard – like coconut oil for frying or pumpkin seeds for snacking!
If you use this ingredients bundle to make our buckwheat porridge, it will make 12 portions with plenty agave syrup left over to use in your baking and hot drinks. That’s £1.95 for a dairy-free, gluten-free and naturally sweetened breakfast that you can make at any time, no need to worry about opened bottles of nut milk, simply use our cashew milk powder as you require it.
Fancy mixing in some fruit to your bowl of buckwheat porridge, add a 50g bag of freeze dried strawberry slices to your basket for just £3.99. Remember freeze dried fruits are made with 10 x their weight amount of actual fruit before the water is removed. Freeze dried fruits can be stored in the cupboard for whenever you need them and come into their own at this time of year when good quality fresh fruit is hard to find.
