Vegan Buckwheat Pancake in Tomato Sauce Gluten Free. The proposition for today is something similar to a potato pancake, but rather healthier. It is my fabulously delicious Buckwheat Pancake. Buckwheat is a better friend to our bodily organs than potatoes because it doesn’t acidify our bodies so we digest it much easier.

Eating  buckwheat is a great option for those looking for gluten free meals, those that like being slim and those that look after their health. It contains high levels of fibre, essential minerals such as Iron, Magnesium and Calcium and various vitamins (mainly from B-group). Traditionally this dish is prepared with meat. But since I don’t eat meat, I replace it with organic tofu. Remember to always buy a good quality, organic tofu. here you are: Vegan Buckwheat Pancake in Tomato Sauce Gluten Free.
