Buckwheat Cabbage Bowl

Make 2 medium size servings

How to cook buckwheat
1/2 cup toasted buckwheat groats
1 cups water

Pour water into medium size saucepan and bring to boil. Add dash of salt and put dry toasted buckwheat groats, reduce heat to medium-high and simmer until most of the water is absorbed, about 10-15 minutes stirring occasionally. Take the pan out of heat, but leave the lid on to allow buckwheat to finish cooking for another 5 minutes.

It can be done one day before actual serving. Cooked buckwheat might be kept in refrigerator for a couple days.

2 teaspoons olive oil
1 medium size yellow onion, chopped
1 medium size carrot, peeled and grated on large holes of the grater
2 garlic gloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 medium size cabbage, thinly shredded
1 cup cooked buckwheat
Salt and Pepper to taste.
1 teaspoon olive oil
15 cherry tomatoes
1 tablespoon soy sauce
Salt and Pepper to taste
Avocado, sour cream or yogurt for serving

Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over the medium heat.
- Add the onion. Cook, stirring, until tender, about 5 minutes.

- Add cumin, coriander, lemon juice, and carrots, cook for 3-5 minutes.

- Add cabbage and a generous pinch of salt, cook stirring every minute until it begins to wilt, about 5 minutes.

- Add cooked buckwheat to a pan with veggie mixture. Mix everything very well and saute for 3-4 minutes. Taste and adjust the seasonings with salt and pepper.

While veggies and buckwheat is cooking, heat the 1 teaspoon olive oil on a small frying pan on a high heat. Add cherry tomatoes, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Fry for about 2-3 minutes. Using a sharp folk, pierce each tomato and flat a bit. Add 1 tablespoon soy sauce and saute for more 1 minutes. Taste and adjust the seasonings with salt and pepper.

Place veggie mixture and cherry tomatoes on a plate. Serve immediately with avocado and sour cream.
