A couple of years ago my mother gave me this recipe book by Anni Arro – local chef and TV hostess. I love it! Mainly because its recipes are easy and contain ingredients which are commonly used and loved by Estonians.
Our favourite recipe from this book has to be the buckwheat porridge (although the pumpkin pie is also really good). It’s semi-healthy and oh so delicious! The photos don’t do it justice, but believe me when I say that once you try it, you’ll never see buckwheat as this boring ingredient again.
2 cups of buckwheat
3 cloves of garlic
1 onion, sliced
100 g of salami, sliced
5 strips of bacon
3 tbsp of sun-dried tomatoes
Salt & pepper
- Lightly brown the buckwheat in hot oil.
- Transfer it into a saucepan and cook in a large amount of water until al dente.
- Brown the onion, garlic, salami and bacon in hot oil.
- Add the cooked buckwheat and sun-dried tomatoes, mix well and cook for about a minute.
- Add some salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately.
- Lick the plate, because it’s just that good!
