Buckwheat's grain-like seeds can be enjoyed cooked as they are, or ground into a naturally gluten-free flour. Common in Eastern European cuisine, buckwheat appears in everything from blinis to slow cooker soups.

    A very tasty cheese straw recipe made with wholemeal and buckwheat flour for a rustic taste and texture. The chopped fresh rosemary makes a lovely addition to this king of canapes. You can use one cheese or a mixture of both.

    This is a truly delicious traditional French dessert which uses buckwheat flour, prunes, raisins and cinnamon. It's basically like a baked custard with dried fruit but it is delicious and has that rich, dense texture. You can use plain flour instead of buckwheat, if you prefer.

    A very filling lunch or side dish. Plus it's gluten and dairy-free. Cooking the onion and garlic is optional, especially if you opt to use red onion. Minced red chilli peppers also work well in this dish.

    A super canapé for an elegant brunch or dinner party. Light buckwheat blinis are topped with a classic combo of smoked salmon, soured cream and fresh dill. You need start the blinis early because they need a few hours to rise.

    Sprouted buckwheat salad is a delicious healthy salad. I keep a supply of either fresh salad vegetables prepared in my fridge or cooked vegetables along with some cooked sprouted buckwheat. This salad can then be prepared in minutes for my lunchbox.

    The delicious blinis or mini pancakes are delicious served warm with smoked salmon, tzatziki or hummus. They can be made in advance, then frozen or refrigerated. All you need to do is warm them through before serving.
