Meals with buckwheat

So I tried the buckwheat and the sweet potato and buckwheat noodles and wasn't that bothered about them! They seemed to stick together when cooking even though I used lots of water and did not cook them for very long at all! The noodles did taste good though.

Here are my dinner pics using the noodles:

I also tried buckwheat pasta:





As you can see, pretty mushy in texture but I actually preferred the pasta to the noodles.
Somehow the soft texture made it nice and comforting to eat. Also in this meal are peppers and peas. I would definitely buy this pasta again (shame it is so expensive!)
Also- just wanted to mention that Katie (http://chocolatecoveredkatie.wordpress.com/) is doing a fabulous giveaway at the moment, with all her fave goodies up for grabs for 2 lucky winners! The closing date is April 10th so if you want to enter, you don't have long!

Hey :) I am a gluten free veggie so I was interested to hear what you thought about the buckwheat noodles. I'm not a huge fan of buckwheat either, I much prefer corn pasta. It's cool that you're in London - are you going to Viva's incredible veggie show? There are details on the Viva website. It's on the 18th, I'm really excited about going :D I live in the middle of nowhere so don't get to hang out with other veggies nearly often enough!
Hope you're having a nice evening :)
