savory buckwheat for breakfast

by Lori and Michelle on August 16, 2011

good morning friends!

sorry for the late post, I took Michelle in to get some blood work done, so a little behind this morning

looks like we are not the only ones who love their salads! it is nice knowing that we are not the only people who just can’t get enough salads.

this morning we have a delicious blog inspiration recipe for you.

The inspiration comes from one of our dear blog friends, Ashley! Michelle had the honor of meeting her at Foodbuzz last year and through the year we have seen Ashley create some amazing recipes! And one of those recipes is her buckwheat bakes.

Ashley has created so many different flavors of her buckwheat bakes kinda like what we have done with our socca addiction which we know she is a socca fan too.  All of them look phenomenal.

We had a tough time choosing between some of her sweet flavors or trying her most recent savory bake.

We went with the savory bake! And it was PERFECT! Just what we were craving.


Let cool for a little bit and than flipped them out of the ramekin. The bake was delicious plain but also tasted amazing when we added some salsa verde.

Our savory buckwheat bake was so yummy and scrumptious.  We shall be making it again.

If you have not checked out Ashley’s buckwheat bakes yet you must! They are super easy to make and since they are based out of buckwheat they are gluten-free too!!

We love our buckwheat so simple yet versatile to make sweet or savory items with.. Seriously just like our socca where the flavor combinations just start rolling in!

Twins question: Do you like buckwheat? If so, what is your favorite way to enjoy it? If not, would you ever give it a try? Do you like starting your day with sweet or savory meals?

till next time,

I LOVE buckwheat! I actually just soaked and dehydrated a bunch of it! It’s great for raw breads/crackers, but I also love using it as a crunchy raw topping for my smoothies!
That bake looks delicious – I’m definitely going to have to give this recipe a try! xoxo

Ashley August 16, 2011 at 9:10 am

Oh man!!! This sounds fabulous. Great substitutions…especially the tahini + nooch. So glad you both liked this…thanks for the recipe inspiration love! :)

Kelsey August 16, 2011 at 9:11 am

oh my goodness I can’t wait to try this! I’m a sweet breakfast girl, but sometimes I crave savory foods in the mornings. this looks absolutely perfect–especially topped with salsa verde. YUMM !!

Em August 16, 2011 at 9:27 am

wow this looks SO yummy! i love all these ingredients! (-: nice work!

Jessie James August 16, 2011 at 9:44 am

this looks so tasty! I cannot wait!

Rachel @ Eat, Learn, Discover! August 16, 2011 at 9:47 am

Love buckwheat! But I don’t usually have the patience to wait for breakfast to bake for 30 minutes, so I’ve been eating it like cereal (soaked or toasted!) with some puffed amaranth as well!

Aine @ Something to Chew Over August 16, 2011 at 9:52 am

Yum yum! I’ll have to check out Ashley’s blog :)

Sometimes I like a sweet breakfast, sometimes savoury…or a combination of both!

Claire August 16, 2011 at 10:16 am

I saw this recipe over on Ashley’s site and it looks delish! Any ideas for how to make it vegan (no egg)??

Heather @ Get Healthy with Heather August 16, 2011 at 10:26 am

Such great recipe inspiration! I need to try the savory buckwheat bake… Gone for sweet before but not yet this. Looks amazing!

Pure2 August 16, 2011 at 10:47 am

thank you Ashley for the idea!

Pure2 August 16, 2011 at 10:47 am

Krissy yes buckwheat is great for so many things!

Pure2 August 16, 2011 at 10:48 am

Rachel agree about waiting, love puffed amaranth!

Pure2 August 16, 2011 at 10:49 am

Aine, yes sweet and savory :)

Pure2 August 16, 2011 at 10:50 am

Claire – using flax gel would work or even chia seed gel, I know Ashley gives vegan options for her recipes, but flax gel would be great, about 1 tbsp flax meal with 3 tbsp water

savory breakfasts are my fave! good luck with the bloodwork michelle! anything with tahini is divine! i never have had buckwheat! i haven’t had any nut flours in months?! just not in a baking mood lately i guess?

Eden August 16, 2011 at 12:55 pm

I keep wanting to kick myself for not hanging out with you more at foodbuzz! GRRRR!!!!

Renata August 16, 2011 at 1:22 pm

This looks DE-LISH! Is it filling?

Pure2 August 16, 2011 at 1:24 pm

Same here Eden, I think I would have had a much better time if I got to hang out with you more!

Pure2 August 16, 2011 at 1:24 pm

Renata, yes it was pretty filling.

Kate August 16, 2011 at 1:35 pm

This looks amazing I need to eat more savory meals for breakfast sweets dont keep me full!

Jillian August 16, 2011 at 1:50 pm

Hi! I nominated your bakery for the VegNews magazine awards, and also put you down as my favorite blog…hope you guys win! Also, I am SO happy to see that your products are available in Washington now! I am in Canada but its worth the trip!!

Christine (The Raw Project) August 16, 2011 at 4:29 pm

This looks wonderful! Currently I adore using buckwheaties as cereal or to add crunch to raw desserts.

Pure2 August 16, 2011 at 5:14 pm

Jillian thank you soooooooo much!!!!! You are the sweetest!!!! thank you :)

Laury @thefitnessdish August 16, 2011 at 6:09 pm

I looooove buckwheat..and I make killer buckwheat banana pancakes that I need to put on the blog soon!

Pure2 August 16, 2011 at 6:52 pm

Laury, we are coming over for pancakes :) yum!

Lindsay @ Pinch of Yum August 17, 2011 at 6:50 am

I have seen Ashley’s breakfast bakes and been wanting to try them for a while! I didn’t know she had savory ones too! Awesome.

sophie August 18, 2011 at 9:33 am

Hey! This recipe was great. This recipe yielded two ramekins for me…and I just had one! I added cayenne pepper, curry powder, and frest dill.

Thanks!! (For dessert – avocado mesquite pudding!)

I love your ladies’ recipes!

Pure2 August 18, 2011 at 9:53 am

so glad to hear it Sophie!!!! YAY thank you!!

Kristin @ eat healthy. be happy. live well. August 20, 2011 at 6:48 am

I just bought buckwheat flour yesterday for the first time! I’ll have to check out Ashley’s recipes because right now I only have one cookie recipe and I was going to try to make buckwheat pancakes. Other than that I was clueless how to use it!

myFudo August 29, 2011 at 2:37 am

This looks promising and healthy. Great way to start the day with. Love your blog.

Winnie August 29, 2011 at 4:55 am

These look so good. I love buckwheat but don’t eat it nearly enough… August 29, 2011 at 8:03 am

Wow, that looks great! I really like the addition of the salsa verde! Yum!

Len (from the urban peasantry) August 29, 2011 at 2:27 pm

This is savory at its best. Love the no-salt variation. I wonder what effect does yeast help to achieve in this particular bake? Could one do without it? Thanks for the recipe and have a great day!

Ashley January 21, 2012 at 8:21 pm

Aw, thanks for the mention and kind words. You girls rock. And this reminds me, I need to make more savory bakes. Love them! Hope you’re having a fabulous weekend.

Ashley January 21, 2012 at 8:23 pm

Weird. It said I made a duplicate comment, but it’s not showing up. Anywho… Thanks for the link love and I’m so glad you two are digging the savory buckwheat bakes. I really need to make more of them. Love your changes to the recipe. Sounds deeelicious! xo

Kristi August 2, 2012 at 8:20 am

Can you do this as a raw dish in the dehydrator? I am searching for savory raw breakfast recipes.

Lori and Michelle August 2, 2012 at 7:00 pm

Kristi you can always try it.
