Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all important meals to me. I love cooking and making myself fresh food for every meal. A lot of the time I will eat leftovers for lunch. When I haven’t got any leftovers I like to have a range of meals I can cook. Therefore I’m always experimenting and finding new ingredients to cook with.
Ginger is a spice I regularly use in a lot of my dishes but raw buck wheat is not a food I can honestly say I eat on a great deal. In fact the last time was in France about five years ago. I felt it was time to try this delicious seed. Buckwheat is high in fibre, a great source of protein and it’s gluten free too. These qualities are good for me especially as it’s gluten free. I ate it for breakfast but it would make a yummy lunch or dinner too. Below is a video and recipe for you.

Savoury Buck Wheat Ginger Bowl was so tasty. As I mentioned earlier I ate this for my breakfast and it was so good. It was very filling and kept me going until lunch. If you wanted to make this a vegan meal you could add beans, lentils or tofu instead of the egg. It’s a quick and easy dish to prepare. Plus it doesn’t take long to cook. It would also be delicious hot or cold, with boiled egg instead of fried, for a picnic lunch or dinner. However you decide to eat this dish as always please enjoy. Thank you xxx
