Serve as a side dish with roasted meat.
  • Root vegetables can be added to the dish, which is stewed together with onions and peppers. You can add smoked sausage, increase the amount of water and you will get a very tasty stew.
  • Dear Vsevem's recommendation: "I often make buckwheat with vegetables, but I simplify it. I never cook it before, but buckwheat, just washed, I add it to a little fried vegetable (I put what I have on hand ...) and then I continue to make it as a risotto. It means occasionally adding water until the buckwheat is cooked. And I always make a little more, and then I add vinegar, pumpkin or olive oil, salt and pepper to the cold and make it as a salad.
