Buckwheat and Mushroom Casserole http://www.estoniancuisine.com

The first written notices approve that buckwheat was in Estonia already in 14 th of century. Later, in 19 th century became potato more popular, but still buckwheat is very common and popular in Estonian cuisine.

This is my favourite. Easy to cook and healthy to eat.
By book you should buckwheat before cooking, simmer in hot butter. But at least in Estonia buckwheat is too “dirty” and I  start buckwheat cooking from washing.

I wash buckweat, pour it in  to the boiling water, add some salt and after 15 minutes, strain. Then I heat buckweat in a pot until water has evaporated and add some butter.

Perfect dinner, if you cooked yesterday too much buckwheat:)

Simple Mushroom salad

seenesalat1 (2)

I used in headline word “mushroom”. But in Estonia, when we are talking about mushrooms, we mean forest and/or wild mushrooms: milk mushrooms, russulas, chanterelle….

As Estonia has an abundance of forest, we like to pick berries and mushrooms.

For winter mushrooms are  marinated, or salted or fermented. Or dried.
But the easiest way to freeze.  Heat the mushrooms in a skillet until water has evaporated and add butter. Pour mixture into boxes and freeze over winter.

In this photo and recipe I used marinated russulales.( it is very complicated to find english translation, but it seems to be  false saffron milkcap)

Creamy Chicken fillet with Chanterelle

Next to my home is beautiful park. And flower beds.
Beautiful, but full of weeds.

I am walking and thinking.  Should I do a little weeding? This is not difficult and each physical movement is a good movement 🙂 When I am walking back, I will…

I am walking back and…. I see, that one women already weeding!
Waw! I am only thinking but some people are acting.  Shame to me.

I am getting closer and.. I see. Woman is not weeding. She is picking flowers… 🙂 🙂

So. Please do not pick flowers from public flower beds.

Better go to the forest and pick up the mushrooms  🙂

Picking wild mushrooms means the aromas of the fields and the forest.
