First, you soak your corn for about 24 hrs with lime juice.

Then you make the “hotdogs” with the recipe from RV burger, shape them like a hot dog and dehydrate (or oven on the lowest setting) for about 2 hours or until they are firm. Turn them after 1 hr. The wetter the mixture the longer it takes to dehydrate.

Drain and blend the corn until you get a almost smooth consistency. Spread it on one side of the “hotdog” and dehydrate until crunchy. Turn over and repeat, mind you…this can be a messy process :) You can add some spices like celtic sea salt, paprika powder or any spice you like to the corn paste.

Enjoy ♡♡♡

RV Buckwheat porridge.

 

 

 

 

 

It’s been a long time since I posted some recipes. Last year, was a very busy one. Anyways…

This recipe is very nutritious and delish, even my 4 year old likes it and asks me to make it all the time :)

Buckwheat’s well-balanced starch, protein, fat and mineral composition has found a renewed interest, particularly among the food scientists. Additionally, its seeds compose proportionately more starch and less fat content than fellow oil seeds, hence can be handled in a way like any other staple grains. Being a short-season crop and sustainable characteristic of thriving under drought conditions, it may be an answer for malnutrition alleviation, particularly in famine-prone regions.

 

Health benefits of buckwheat

  • Buckwheat grains compose proportionately more starch than other similar seeds like quinoa and amaranth. 100 g seeds (grains) provide 343 calories. The grains are moderate sources of energy, and calorie content may be compared to that of major cereals such as wheat, maize, rice and that of pulses like chickpea, mung bean, cowpea (black-eye pea), etc.
  • The protein level in buckwheat grains is the range of 11-14 g of protein per 100 g; relatively less than that in quinoa and pulses. Nonetheless, it composes all the indispensable amino acids for the human body at excellent proportions, especially in lysine which is otherwise a limiting amino acid in grains like wheat, maize, rice, etc.
  • Buckwheat seeds are very rich source of soluble and insoluble dietary fiber. 100 g provide 10 g or 26% of daily requirement of fiber. Fiber increase bulkiness of the food and helps prevent constipation problems by speeding up bowel movements through the gut. Fiber also binds to toxins and aid in their excretion from the gut and helps protect the colon mucus membrane from cancers. In addition, dietary fibers bind to bile salts (produced from cholesterol) and decrease their re-absorption in colon, thus help lower serum LDL cholesterol levels.
  • Buckwheat is another gluten-free food source. Gluten is a protein present in certain grass family grains and may induce stomach upset and diarrhea condition in individuals with Celiac disease.
  • The grains compose of several polyphenolic antioxidant compounds such as rutin, tannins and catechin. Rutin (quercetin rutinoside) is found to have anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties and help prevent platelet clot formation inside the blood vessels. Early laboratory studies suggest that rutin may offer a cure in hemorrhoids, and clotting disorders.
  • Buckwheat grains have more B-complex group of vitamins, than that of quinoa seeds, especially riboflavin (vitamin B2) and  niacin (vitamin B3).
  • Finally, buckwheat has more concentration of minerals like copper, and magnesium. Copper is required for the production of red blood cells. Magnesium relaxes blood vessels leading to brain and found to have curative effects on depression, and headache.
