Buckwheat is one of the healthiest grains, providing not only energy, but also helps with digestion, obesity, cholesterol, blood pressure and other problems. These small grains itself contains a variety of vitamins and other substances the body needs. So if you don’t use buckwheat in your daily diet, I strongly recommend to start using it. Buckwheat dishes are not only healthy, but delicious as well. The buckwheat taste is slightly different from other grains, but as well as from other grains you can prepare a wide variety of meals using buckwheat. 🙂
One of the simplest dishes of Lithuanian cuisine – buckwheat with bacon and onion. Typically, I boil buckwheat, but this time I just soak them in water. The taste is exactly the same as the boiled buckwheat, you just need to wait until the grains are swelling.
