    Also called ‘kasha’, whole buckwheat grains give a pleasing chewy texture to this hearty vegetarian pilaf. Buckwheat is higher in protein than most grains, as well as providing B vitamins, minerals and fibre.

    Hot out the oven, these muffins are gorgeous. Best thing is they are so easy to prepare even the kids can do it. Use any choice of dried fruit and substitute the flour for wholemeal or spelt too. I find Doves farm flour fantastic. Enjoy with a nice cuppa!

    These little Russian pancakes have a deliciously distinctive flavour. For a more luxurious starter, top with a spoonful of dip or sour cream.
