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.
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
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.
