Buckwheat with mushrooms spinach & tahini sauce

Today’s dish is incredibly simple to do: with only 7 ingredients, it is very nourishing and delicious. The main ingredient is buckwheat. Although it has wheat in its name, it doesn’t contain any wheat, nor gluten. It is often treated as a grain but it doesn’t come from grass. Instead, it is a seed of a plant, and due to the fact that it shares a lot of similar properties with cereals, it’s considered a pseudo-cereal. Its health benefits are unquestionable: amongst others, it is a great source of protein, complex carbs, fibre, iron, and vitamin B. On top of it, the taste is subtle, amazing, and its texture incredibly satisfying!
