• Buckwheat bowl with avocado, cherry tomatoes and eggplant

    Okay, maybe it’s not so pretty, but haven’t we all learned not to judge by the looks? This dish is really creamy with a risotto-like texture and rich taste. It’s both a perfect main for vegans or vegetarians and great as a side dish. We have written about the great benefits of buckwheat before, and it’s absolutely a great alternative to refined rice or pasta. It is naturally gluten-free (it actually has nothing to do with wheat, but it is a type of nut) and very friendly for the tummy 🙂 Buckwheat can be combined with so many things, such as sweet berries and dates in a porridge, or savory flavors such…

  • Asian wok with soba noodles

    This meal is super easy to prepare and is SO tasty and spicy. Instead of white (wheat) noodles, we love using soba noodles which are made of 100% buckwheat (soba means buckwheat in Japanese). The noodles originate from Japan and contain manganese, really good protein (without all the saturated fat), carbohydrates and thiamin (also known as b1). Manganese is good for the energy metabolism (boosting your fat burning) and thiamin supports the function of the immune and nervous system keeping you healthy all year long – wuhuu! Miso soup has been a staple in Japanese diet dating back 2500 years! That is pretty incredible. Today most Japanese people start their day with miso which they believe stimulates…
