An exquisite salad of fresh vegetables, brie cheese and sprouted green buckwheat is a great dish for a romantic dinner.

  • 140 g green buckwheat
  • 40 g brie cheese
  • 1 large cucumber
  • half sweet pepper
  • 8 – 10 pcs. cherry tomatoes
  • 3 tbsp. l. olive oil
  • Salt, pepper to taste
  • 1 – 2 green onion feathers (optional)

For this salad, green buckwheat needs to be germinated, which will take some time. Rinse green buckwheat, cover with cold water and leave for 1-2 hours to swell. Then rinse again, drain the water, transfer to a container in which the grains will germinate. Spread the grain in a thin layer along the bottom, wrap the container with cling film and make several small holes in the film for air to enter. Place in a warm, dark place for about a day. During this time, thin white sprouts should appear on the grains.

Now you can start preparing the salad. Cut vegetables and brie into small cubes, combine with sprouted buckwheat, season with oil and spices.
