“This alternative to rice pairs buckwheat with bacon to create a meaty-tasting side dish.” - by REDFIORO
Original recipe yields 2 servings
- Heat the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the shallots and garlic; cook until softened and light brown. Add the bacon pieces and buckwheat; cook and stir until the buckwheat turns orangeish brown, about 5 minutes.
- Add the stock and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer gently until the liquid is absorbed and the buckwheat is tender,13 to 15 minutes. Toss with the parsley, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.

"I used 5 strips of turkey bacon, extra garlic from a jar, 1/2 cup buckwheat and 1 1/2 cups very low sodium organic chicken broth. I left out the parsley and shallots, but added plenty of green onions...." See more The cooking time was still perfect and my husband loved this! Thanks for the new buckwheat recipe (there are not too many off them around)!"
