Buckwheat Cooking Hints! Recipe

Recipe Ingredients


Recipe Preparation

Cooking Hints! When cooking whole kasha or whole buckwheat groats,
it's unnecessary to use an egg to coat the kernels. The thin seed
coating on whole buckwheat shields each kernel while it cooks,
keeping particles separate and fluffy. Egg white works just as well
as whole egg, when cooking fine, medium or coarse kasha. On these
granulations of kasha, the thin seed coatings are cracked. Use an
egg, egg white or egg substitute to 'seal' each particle and keep
starch granules from sticking together. Follow package directions.

For fluffy kasha and tender groats, boiling hot liquid gives the best
results. Broth-homemade, canned or from a bouillon cube or powder-
adds more flavor than water.

Cooking times vary for fine, medium, coarse or whole kasha. Follow
times on package, keep heat low, and don't lift the lid to peek!
Buckwheat flour is a baker's delight. Make tender pastry crusts and
rolled cookies. If you rework dough, it won't be tough--because it's
gluten-free. For the same reason, pair buckwheat flour in cakes,
muffins and yeast breads. Without some gluten for support, these
might collapse.

In deciding on a diet, it is essential to attempt to lower your consumption of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
The argument against low carb diets
Its all the rage, but it is truly safe for you?
Remember, one fact that is frequently overlooked, it is very hard (although not technically impossible) for vegetarians to follow a low carbohydrate diet.
Many scientific studies over recent years have proved that high consumption of animal fat can lead to higher chance of cancer, heart problems and other major health problems.
Foods containing carotenes
(includes cilantro, mangos and winter squash)
These foods contain alpha-carotene and beta-carotene believed to play a major part in preventing cancer, particularly those cancers involving the lungs. Most also have a low calorie count, so are ideal for including in your weight loss program.
