Wholesome Buckwheat Crepes

Rating: 4.67 stars
These gluten-free, lactose-free crepes are not only made 100% with buckwheat, but they use wholesome raw buckwheat groats instead of buckwheat flour, which often has a very strong flavor when not fresh. Soaking the groats before using them develops a lovely texture and a delicious, soft nutty taste. After blending you end up with a smooth batter. These crepes do not crisp up and become golden but they are very pliable and go great with maple syrup, berries, jam, and mashed bananas as filling.

Lentils and Buckwheat Salad To Go (Gluten-Free)

Rating: 4.5 stars
I needed a nourishing and complete meal-in-one that I could take with me on the go. I prepare this the day before I travel and put it in the fridge overnight. It has a great flavor that, when left to sit at room temperature, bursts through even more. The spinach leaves are sturdy and resilient so don't wilt as would lettuce. I hope you like it.

Buckwheat Pancakes

Rating: 4.77 stars
I decided to make buckwheat pancakes for a few reasons: I get lots of requests for anything breakfast, I'm trying to cook with more whole grains, and I heard someone say it's almost impossible to make a great pancake using 100% buckwheat flour.

Gluten-Free Hot Breakfast Cereal

Rating: 4.65 stars
This is a whole grain blend of 8 gluten free grains and seeds which are ground in a coffee grinder and cooked. Since going gluten and casein free I have been unable to find any hot breakfast cereals that we enjoy. So I created this one and the whole family loves it. Serve with brown sugar, agave nectar, honey or fruit.

Gluten-Free Sourdough Starter

Rating: 5 stars
This is a step-by-step guide on how to begin a gluten-free sourdough starter without yeast. The amounts here are for getting the mother dough started. You will need to keep extra flour mix on-hand to continue feeding as long as you want to keep the starter. Once it begins to have a sponge-like consistency, it is ready to use and should be kept in the fridge or else it will grow wild all over the counter. Add a bit of the starter in your favorite recipes calling for yeast or baking powder for a unique flavor and texture.

A nice change from pancakes for Sunday breakfast. This is an old French Acadia breakfast from my childhood. Best served with ham steaks and eggs. Give this a try and add fruit if you wish. Serve with melted butter or margarine and warm molasses.
