Although Christmas is a little more than six weeks away, there is never too soon to start planning the dinner menu. Especially if we decide to go with more ethical and healthier choices. Nevertheless, this meal can be also great for any day of the week if you wish or for Thanksgiving if you are living in the U.S.

Regarding cooking buckwheat groats, I have to be honest with you, I am still not one hundred percent sure. I tried two different ways following the instructions on the package and what I found online. However, I discovered that the groats were cooked faster than I expected. Therefore I recommend you keep an eye on them, making sure you take them off the heat before they overcook. Also, do not rinse them before cooking! You may watch a video of my other recipe the STUFFED BUTTERNUT SQUASH.

Nevertheless, I love buckwheat and I will be making more recipes for sure. Keep an eye on my MAIN COURSE for upcoming dishes with buckwheat groats. Besides that, I also used buckwheat flour for buckwheat pizza, which was delicious but didn’t look too good. However, last week I made BUCKWHEAT PORRIDGE and I am loving it!!! It is truly amazing how versatile this Ancient cereal is and I hope you are going to try it. Also, it is extremely healthy, just like all other Ancient cereals & grains and if you would like to learn more about its nutritional value, you can look that up HERE.
