A chef in Latvia has found a novel way of serving buckwheat – blowing it up in a twisted take on traditional popcorn.
Buckwheat explodes when heated just like regular corn, according to a recipe shared by Latvia’s public broadcaster, LSM.
For the new take on popcorn, boil buckwheat without seasoning, spread it on a tray, and leave on the windowsill or in the oven on ventilation mode to dry. Heat oil in a saucepan and pour dried buckwheat into the hot oil.
Once popped, put the buckwheat on a napkin. Add salt, sugar, or other spices to your taste.
