Roasted buckwheat groats with mushrooms and prunes


Hi All,

I hope you had a fabulous weekend. We had a pretty busy one. Well, some of us had, others did this as you can see:


We have started Christmas shopping and decorated our house to get into the Holiday spirit a little bit earlier than usually.

I have a question for you:

How many of you have things in your pantry that your don’t eat anymore and they are just sitting there taking up space?

I used to eat dried prunes a lot!!!and thanks to Costo I still have few bags of them left. They were helping me for a while with my stomach issues but things changed and I don’t eat them anymore. Since my Monday morning was rushed I didn’t prepare anything for dinner tonight for Tom and myself. Besides this time of the year I tend to clean up stuff (quite ironically). So this is what came up for our fix dinner: Roasted buckwheat groats with mushrooms and prunes



1 c of cooked buckwheat

1/2 onion

1c dried mushrooms (soaked for 1 h in water)

a handful of fresh parsley

2-3 tbsp Greek Yogurt

salt & pepper

1-2 tbsp olive oil

Start to stir fry mushrooms and onion, let it simmer for a few minutes. Add salt and pepper and when ready add chopped prunes. Mix everything with buckwheat and place in an ovenproof dish. Spread Greek yogurt+parsley on top and bake for around 20-25 min in 350F. It was delicious so give it a try.






Your turn: do you have any “weird” but delicious recipes to share ?
