Tasty Facts

Cooking buckwheat in bags allows you to save time on such moments as washing the cereal, removing vegetable debris from it and distributing the cereal into portions. Also, after cooking cereals in bags, a busy hostess will not have to spend time washing the pan.

Milk porridge can also be cooked in bags. First, boil the cereal in a small amount of water for a few minutes, and then add water, but it is better to boil two or three servings at once to make the most of the used milk.

To cook porridge, cereals need to be cooked a little longer, until completely boiled – about 20 minutes.

The amount of liquid should be such that the water covers the bag for 1 – 2 fingers.

To save time, water can be pre-boiled in a kettle.

While buckwheat is being cooked, you can quickly make a topping for it by frying onions, carrots, bell peppers or mushrooms.
