I am totally addicted to buckwheat pasta, ist discovered them this year. LOVE big time. And on photos they just look so contrasty and elegant. They go perfectly with any fall veggies and I love them with Brüssel sprouts and pumpkin, coming with a spicy tahin cream. Do you love discovering new pasta variations? I find it so exciting to discover noodles made from buckwheat, legumes and rice. Such an easy way to include more nutrients into your daily meals. Oh what am I blabbering about being healthy – it has to taste good in the end, right? This recipe is perfect for all of you who love to eat healthy, but are starving for some new and tasty options made in only 20 minutes. Definitely a must try!
