Hello to you all dear readers and admirers of HozOboz! Today our dish of the day is buckwheat with vegetables in the oven. It seems easy and simple, and what is there to teach, you say. But no! There is always something to learn and there is always something to improve in your skills. And the fact that for you and me seems to be quite an ordinary and trifling dish, such as, for example, buckwheat with vegetables in the oven and its recipe, for another - a curiosity and exotic. Do you know that you can only buy this very buckwheat outside of our vast homeland except in a pharmacy? Why and what it is connected with, and you can learn some more interesting facts about buckwheat from our review.
Given the fact that buckwheat is dearly loved by our compatriots, you might think that we have grown it for the first time. And here it is not. The homeland of buckwheat is Asia. More precisely, it comes from the northern slopes of the Himalayas: from Tibet and southern China. It is from this culture that the so-called large-fruited forms originate, which then spread to Japan, China, Korea and North America. But in our area, in Eastern Europe, buckwheat appeared much later, but it also entrenched itself much more reliably.
The main distribution area of the Dnieper region. Presumably the Tatars brought her to us. During excavations on the modern territory of the Vinnitsa region, buckwheat seeds from the II-III century were found. The main reliable data regarding this culture is considered to be the mention of it in the "Tale of Igor's Campaign" dated 1185. Already by the 17th century, the main supplier of buckwheat in Europe was Ukraine, which grew it more than all steel crops combined. They boiled it, stewed it in the oven, made flour from it, and then baked bread and pancakes, even made desserts from buckwheat.
In general, it, and not wheat, can be safely called the main cereal of that time. I think at the same time our heroine, buckwheat with chicken and vegetables, became popular, but not in the oven, but in the oven and in pots ... I promise that buckwheat with vegetables and meat in the oven in a pot will become the topic of one of the next reviews, but for now let's turn to our today's dish - vegetarian. Let's start preparing right now.
I think that buckwheat with vegetables in the oven, and maybe even with meat, is a wonderful thing; hearty, tasty, healthy, and what else do you need. She is good in children's, and in dietary nutrition, and even for those who can hardly do anything because of a strict diet. Imagine how good the vegetables baked in the oven with buckwheat are. Buckwheat, as they say, along with bread is the head of everything. So eat, dear ones, to your health and share with us the recipes of your favorite dishes. Your HozOboz!
