shallots, finely chopped
bacon strips, chopped
uncooked medium roasted buckwheat groats
coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley
salt and coarsely ground pepper to taste
I used 5 strips of turkey bacon, extra garlic from a jar, 1/2 cup buckwheat and 1 1/2 cups very low sodium organic chicken broth. I left out the parsley and shallots, but added plenty of green onions. The cooking time was still perfect and my husband loved this! Thanks for the new buckwheat recipe (there are not too many off them around)!
I love buckwheat but I wasn't impressed with this recipe. I would recommend adding onion (separately cooked till golden) in the end, because otherwise it becomes mushy.
This recipe rocks!! We are new to the gluten-free thing and this dish was the perfect intro. I had to double the recipe to feed my two pre-teen boys
I accidentally used bulgur instead of buckwheat, but it still tasted delicious. This recipe doesn't make much -- I ate the whole thing for lunch (which is good for me because I'm the only one in the house who'll eat it). I didn't add salt because the bacon and chicken stock had plenty, and I used way more parsley for personal preference. Will definitely make again.
The bacon is so good! Doesn't make a whole lot by our American standards, but this could be a main dish for 2 people. Careful about wolfing this down too fast... the buckwheat is SOOOO filling, you could get a tummy ache! Thanks for the great recipe!
Really good!!! As much as my husband dislike buckwheat, even he admitted that this one is good.
this is pretty good. Definitely a savory side dish. I will make again!
