Fragrant buckwheat with celery root “bacon” and sauerkraut

Yes, again my favourite combo of buckwheat and sauerkraut! ­čśÇ

This time the buckwheat is a teensy bit more fancy – I cooked it with allspice (one or two pieces will do) and a bayleaf, which I removed afterwards, you really don┬┤t want to bite into those!

I sauteed a minced onion on some oil with a pinch of salt, added shredded white cabbage and water to cover maybe about half of the cabbage and then I simmered it under a lid until the cabbage got soft. I seasoned it with caraway seeds, marjoram and black pepper. Towards the end I mixed in also some ready-made sauerkraut and simmered together a bit longer.

I mixed the grain with the vegetable and topped them with mock bacon made from celery root – super easy to make! Just make tiny cubes of the celery root, place them into a fair amount of cold oil with a pinch of salt, turn the flame on and sautee while stirring often until the cubes become golden and look a little like bacon bits ­čśÇ

Celery root bacon

I┬┤ve never seen recipes for “celery root bacon” in foreign macrobiotic cookbooks but for some reason here in Czech Republic it┬┤s a big hit ­čśÇ It┬┤s really easy to make and it does bear a certain resemblance to fatty bacon bits…with some imagination, that is…

Just cut up celery root into tiny cubes (the smaller, the better they get fried) and fry them in a skillet with a generous amount of oil. I flavored them with some salt, dried oregano and dried basil (added towards the end so that they don┬┤t burn).

Served with brown rice with a sprinkle of gomasio and dulse flakes, and blanched turnips.
