I can name many reasons to add buckwheat in your diet. Of course, it’s extremely cheap and available everywhere, so everyone can buy it in local supermarket. But it also extremely healthy! It can help improve blood flow, lower blood pressure and diabetes, prevent heart disease, heart failure and breast cancer. Also, buckwheat is low in saturated fat and sodium, and it contains no sugar or cholesterol. It’s high in Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, protein and essential amino acids.
But buckwheat for lunch? Exactly, simple as it is, yet, really healthy and fun. Can you imagine that you can serve buckwheat sandwich? I will show you the easy way to make it work!
You will need:
200 grams of buckwheat
Bunch of Kale
Bunch of mix Salad
1 Sweet yellow pepper
Pinch of Cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon of Sesame oil
1 teaspoon of Olive oil
1 tablespoon of Flaxseed
8-10 Goji berries
2 stalk of Celery
- Start with kale salad. Break kale and add it to the bowl. Mix lemon juice with salt and sprinkle kale with this sauce. Add some salad leaves, sliced carrot and mix altogether.
- Make sauce. Cut sweet pepper and mix it in your blender (I use VitamiX and love it) with olive oil, pinch of cayenne pepper, Goji berries and celery. Rub through the sieve to be sure it doesn’t contain lumps. Add 1 tablespoon of Flaxseed in the end.
- Cut tomatoes on tiny rounds.
- Let’s serve our sandwich using special serving ring. Buckwheat on the bottom, than several spoons of sauce with turnip, tomatoes and salad on top. Remove the ring to see the sandwich stay strong! Add avocado with tomato and sauce for decoration.
This sandwich are simple to throw together and have a great taste from the combination of sauce and veggies. Try it and enjoy!
