Wholesome Buckwheat Crepes

Rating: 4.5 stars 7
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 2
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.

Gluten-Free Sourdough Starter

Rating: 5 stars 1
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.

Inspiration and Ideas

Overnight Buckwheat Oats
A variation from overnight oats recipe from Alli Shircliff. This is for anyone who doesn't/can't eat oatmeal but wants a delicious, fast, and healthy breakfast. This uses buckwheat flakes--not the cereal flakes but rolled and flaked buckwheat. They look very similar to oatmeal flakes but are much smaller. Mix in agave and berries. Eat and enjoy!
Yeasted Buckwheat Bread

This recipe makes a large 1 1/2-pound buckwheat loaf.
