Raw Buckwheat Ricotta

The simple plain ricotta was actually one of my first experiments with raw buckwheat and I was really amazed how much it resembled “the real thing”. It is great for breakfast, snack or dessert being totally dairy-free.

For me raw buckwheat is one of the greatest findings since discovering plant-based eating more than two years ago. I never knew it existed, how it looked like, how it tasted or what could be made out of it. However, I have learned a great deal!

I have already shared my Fermented Raw Buckwheat Bread, which I still bake on weekly basis, as I have not found any bread I’d like more. From the sweet side you might remember Ricotta-Biscuit Tart, which was a real hit in my family.

Watch me make it in the second video:

While many people think that buckwheat is a cereal grain, it is actually a fruit seed that is related to rhubarb and sorrel making it a suitable substitute for grains for people who are sensitive to wheat or other grains that contain protein glutens. Buckwheat is also a good source of magnesium. This mineral relaxes blood vessels, improving blood flow and nutrient delivery while lowering blood pressure – the perfect combination for a healthy cardiovascular system. (1)
