MeatlessMonday: Buckwheat, Avocado, Tomato & Feta Cheese Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

Mummy’s Fast & Easy

Happy Meatless Monday guys!

I hope you’re all having a great day so far! 
I am definitely having a great time today, despite the bad weather here in the UK. 
I’ve got lots of new stuff coming on my blog so stay tuned..
The recipe of the day is stuffed mushrooms with buckwheat. I added some ripe avocado, tomatoes and feta cheese so it kind of become a buckwheat salad.
There’s one thing to bear in mind when you buy buckwheat though (which I didn’t know, but one learns from experience, right!) – apparently there are two types of buckwheat, one’s called ‘kasha’, the grains are red or brownish, and when cooked it looks like the one in my pictures – mushy consistency. The other one (which I originally wanted to get) is lighter in colour and when cooked the grains stay whole, i.e., it’s not mushy.
Anyhow, buckwheat is delicious no matter which type you choose to cook.

Here’s what you need.
