Buckwheat Bread with Quinoa

Buckwheat Bread with Quinoa

I am starting to explore flours other than the common white all-purpose flour, that I have used for baking all along. There are so many great and healthy options that I want to discover and I have found so many great recipes and ideas lately.

I made a bread with buckwheat flour and quinoa flour and some small mashed potatoes. It is very tasty and quick and easy to make. Making bread yourself has such a fusty image in Germany which is sad. Homemade bread tastes so good! I also think it is a myth that baking your own bread takes a lot of time and effort. All wrong. But in the 15 minutes you can also create a big mess in the kitchen. Flour all over the place it was until I found out that you can also mix flour and water in a bowl rather than creating a crater of flour and fill water in it on a table. I thought it looked kinda fancy…

    With the beginning of autumn this week, I am looking forward to a great variety of autumn vegetables. I bought potatoes, sweet potatoes, eggplants and parsnip yesterday to make an Indian dish that caught my attention in a recent issue of Food and Travel magazine. I also bought the first pumpkin yesterday. Today it popped into my head that in the 90′s my parents used to make tons of pickled pumpkin every year (I think it was some kind of trend back then) and that I very much disliked it. Maybe I will try it this year and reevaluate the taste.
