    Buckwheat flour (we have seen it here and here) is widely used by those who avoid gluten, but also those who prefer nutritional foods. Buckwheat, a shrub with triangular seeds that thrives in cold climates, is indeed very nutritious. It is an excellent source of protein, rich in B vitamins and mainly in riboflavin (B2) and niacin (B3), in vitamins E and K, and contains many minerals and trace elements (calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, manganese, selenium and copper). It also offers enough fiber, while it is rich in flavonoids, substances with strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory action. It has been observed that consumption of buckwheat enhances cardiovascular health as it helps to regulate cholesterol (reduces LDL cholesterol levels and elevates HDL “good” cholesterol) and blood pressure.

    Its taste is more earthy and reminiscent of nuts. It is mainly used in kitchens in the Far East, with the most famous preparation the Japanese soba noodles. Gluten-free beer is also made from buckwheat.

    It is certainly more practical to make the sauce the day before. Serve the buckwheat pancakes with some Greek yogurt. It suits perfectly!  If you are vegan try coconut yoghurt.
