Basic Buckwheat: Lunch in a Jar

July 31, 2018

Welcome back to the BuckWHAT! Blast.  I’m so excited to share our first recipe with you.  It’s something I literally eat almost every day.

Buckwheat is incredibly versatile.  It can be served as a side dish, in a salad, in a smoothie….you name it. Because of its nutritional benefits, it doesn’t require much effort for buckwheat and a few other ingredients to make a tasty, highly nutritious, and filling meal.

Basic buckwheat is super easy to make:  

  • Combine 1 cup toasted buckwheat groats with 1 3/4 cups water
  • Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for about 20 minutes
  • Allow to stand 2- 3 min, fluff with fork, and enjoy

I usually make a big batch early in the week and then use it to make my absolute favorite lunch every day.  I top buckwheat with:

  • Sliced Avocado (the Trader Joe’s teeny tiny ones are my favorite)
  • A chopped hard boiled egg
  • Some greenery or herbs
  • Finish it off with a nice coating of extra virgin olive oil,  Maldon sea salt and Bragg’s nutritional yeast

And, of course, I follow that with a BuckWHAT! Cocoa Nosh for dessert 🙂
