Buckwheat is just an amazing. And buckwheat flour is a suitable substitute for grains for people who are sensitive to wheat or other grains that contain protein gluten.
Buckwheat has little bit nut taste and pancakes served with sweet honey.. this is just divine…)
And one more secret. In East Estonia are saying, that buckwheat is “viagra”. Buckwheat is very healthy and specially useful for man.
This summer was very warm. In May, June, July, August were hot, 30 C degrees. The Estonian climate is very humid, so warm feels hotter and cold is colder.
I love summer and it would be unfair to whine. But heat spill is that mushroom are not growing. Mushroom needs rain and humidity.
But now in September finally started to rain… 🙂
But still. It is not necessary to use wild mushrooms, this dish will be delicious with champignon as well 🙂
Stuffed Cabbage Rolls are dish what is known, I believe, in everywhere. But every nation has his own recipe, something different, which give for this dish special touch and make it different,
Cabbage rolls are everyday dish in Estonia. Ok, it takes some time for preparation, so we probably make them for weekend dinner.
In my recipe Cabbage leaves stuffed with minced meat. But you can stuff them using only vegetables,
It’s also one of those dishes that combines everything in one: your proteins and some vegetable, Obviously you still want a few side dishes , it’s perfect with potatoes or rice or some buckwheat
One of the oldest grain cereals in Estonia was barley.
Barley was the mundane and the ordinary food, and belonged on the table for common people. The oldest data of barley growing in Estonia dates back to the beginning of the first millennium BC.
And we still love barley. Karask is the famous dish in Estonian ethnic cuisine. But add some apples, and you get very delicious, simple and juicy cake.
