Cooking method:

  1. Dry the buckwheat in a dry preheated pan over medium heat, stir for 4-5 minutes. Make sure that the groats do not burn, but slightly change color and acquire a flavor. Pour the fried buckwheat onto a plate.

  7. Mix beets with cooked buckwheat and add lemon juice. Cook for another 2-3 minutes.

    1. By the way, it was really hard for me to find buckwheat in US, I got one, it was called buckwheat, but when I was cooking it (which should take 10-15 minutes to boil) it was overcooked in a 2 minutes and looked awful, so, I normally buy here in Ukraine brown buckwheat, not green.
