I haven’t done a stir-fry in a while, so tonight I figured it was time to make one. Just to be a little different, I made savoury buckwheat groats instead of rice, noodles or quinoa. I think I’ve found a new fave! Normally, I prefer my buckwheat as porridge with maple syrup, but I’ll definitely be using it more with supper dishes. ♥

Savoury Buckwheat Groats
1 C buckwheat* groats
1 chopped onion*
½ tsp turmeric*
1-2 cloves minced garlic*
salt and pepper* to taste
1½ C water
* = Organic

 Heat oil over medium heat. Add onions and groats. Saute until onions begin to turn translucent. Add turmeric, garlic, salt and pepper, and toss to coat all. Add water and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally to avoid sticking/burning. Cover and reduce heat to simmer for 30 minutes. Fluff with a fork and enjoy. Serve with your favourite blend of veg for stir-fry, or in place of rice.

  1. Very cool. Thanks. I’ve been reluctant about buckwheat groats because I made them a couple of times and it just didn’t work for me. THIS looks like something I could get down with.

  2. This sounds great! Think I will try this tomorrow. I haven’t done the potato and kale soup yet! This MS holds me back and making stuff is so much harder these days but this one looks straightforward enough! I will report back!:)
