Yummmy! Buckwheat groats make such a hearty, nutty base for any vegan meal! Contrary to the name, buckweat is not wheat, and is gluten free. This is a great meal going into fall, roasted root veggies and pumpkins a top the wonderfully textured buckwheat makes a fantastic texture. Pretty simple too. This dish would be good topped with avocado, green onions, seeds of choice.
-about 4 whole beets, peeled and chopped to roast
-1/2 butternut squash, chopped to roast
-4 small zuccinis (or about 2 larger ones), cut into about 1 in cubes
Spray a roasting pan with coconut or olive oil and toss you the beets and butternut squash in it. Then sprinkle with herbs. I used garlic powder, parsley, salt, pepper.
Roast 350×45 min, adding the zucchini for the last 20min
Meanwhile, rinse your buckwheat and cook in a rice cooker, brown rice setting works well. For added flavor, substitute the water for broth of choice.
