Private Yoga Instruction – Bangkok, Thailand

Buckwheat PoppySeed Salad

One of my favorite holiday recipes I learned from one of my yoga students a few years ago.  Its a traditional Russian recipe which I love during the holidays.

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup buckwheat

Pinch of sea salt

1/4 cup poppyseeds

Honey to taste

Seeds from 1/2 a pomegranate

Handful of hazelnuts and pumpkin seeds

DIRECTIONS:

First boil the buckwheat starting with one inch of water above the buckwheat.  Add a pinch of salt and cook until the water has absorbed.

Add the poppyseeds and a glug of honey, depending on preference for sweetness.

Though not traditional, I added seeds from half a pomegranate and some pumpkin seeds and hazelnuts.

Enjoy!
