Briarpatch: Buckwheat Bleanies

April 7th

6:00 PM to 8:00 PM

With John of Heartical Foods

In this class we will be making a sprouted buckwheat batter, which we will then use to make hotcakes or sprouted “bleanies” (a popular type of European flatbread), as well as a savory herb batter. For the herb batter we will add fresh herbs along with a pinch of sea salt. We will then use this bright green savory buckwheat batter as a dip with slices of veggies, and to make colorful fried battered veggies. You’ll also learn how to add in any flour you like, to create even more types of flatbread. You’ll see how quick and easy it is to make the sprouted buckwheat batter and use it in various entrees – a gluten-free life saver! Vegan, gluten-free.
