Buckwheat or buckwheat, as it is known in our lands, is extremely useful. But when it is prepared in the form of aromatic meatballs, it is simply irresistible.
1 tsp Serena buckwheat
2 tsp water
80 g of Serena dried tomatoes
40 ml of olive oil
1 small onion
salt and pepper and thyme
2 tbsp. buckwheat flour
Method of preparation:
Buckwheat is boiled in water until it swells and the kernels crack. Leave to cool completely. Dried tomatoes (pre-soaked until softened) are cut into small pieces. They are added to buckwheat together with chopped onion, grated carrot, eggs, flour and spices.
Form small meatballs using oiled hands or a spoon, arrange them in a tray covered with baking paper. Bake in an oven preheated to 180 C (160 C with fan) for 20-25 minutes.
While they are hot, the meatballs are crumbly, but if we care about the appearance, it is good to wait for them to cool down. Cold and garnished with a fresh salad, they are a wonderful lunch or light dinner. If desired, they can be served with milk sauce.
Tomatoes are rich in vitamins - vitamin C, carotene (provitamin A), vitamins E, K, PP and in smaller quantities vitamins B1, B2 and others.
Their low caloric content makes them very suitable for obese people.
Recent medical research has also shown that tomatoes help restore the liver.
