Caramelized Mushroom Mixture:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  1. For the buckwheat: Bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Heat the oil in a medium pot over medium-high heat. Add the buckwheat, salt and toast until the grains smell nutty, stirring occasionally for about 2-3 minutes. Carefully add the boiling water and turn off the heat. Cover the pot with a lid and cook until all the water is absorbed, about 20 minutes. Let the pot stand covered for 10 minutes or longer.
  2. For the caramelized mushroom mixture:  Heat the oil in a medium pot over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms, onions, Herbs de Provence, salt and pepper. Cook until sauteed and golden brown, stirring occasionally for about 12 minutes or so. 
  3. For the tahini dressing: In a small bowl, add all the ingredients and whisk together until smooth. Set aside until ready.
  4. Add your cooked buckwheat and caramelized mushroom mixture to a bowl or plate. Top with the creamy tahini dressing, garlicky chive microgreens, dill and salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
