Lenten buckwheat cutlets

As a professional dietitian, I recommend buckwheat patties as a tasty and healthy dish suitable for a nutritious diet. Buckwheat is an excellent source of slow carbohydrates, protein, and microelements, making it an ideal product for vegetarian and dietary cuisines.


  • – Buckwheat (1 cup): 160 g, 567 kcal.
  • – Water (2 cups): calorie-free.
  • – Salt: to taste, calorie-free.
  • – Onion (1 piece): 150 g, 60 kcal.
  • – Carrot (1 piece): 100 g, 41 kcal.
  • – Potato (2 pieces): 300 g, 231 kcal.
  • – Garlic: 20 g, 30 kcal.
  • – Spices and coriander: minimal calories.
  • – Greens: 50 g, 16 kcal.
  • – Vegetable oil for frying: 30 g, 240 kcal.

Caloric Content:

The total caloric content of all ingredients is approximately 1185 kcal. The number of servings prepared is about 10 patties, so each patty contains about 118.5 kcal.


1. Rinse the buckwheat and cover with water at a 1:2 ratio. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer covered until done, about 15 minutes. Let it cool.

2. Peel the onion, carrot, and potatoes. Grate the onion and carrot, chop the potatoes in a blender or grate them coarsely.

3. Mix the vegetables with the buckwheat, add minced garlic, coriander, salt, and any other spices to taste. Add finely chopped greens.

4. Form patties from the mixture. If the mass is too dry, add some water or vegetable oil.

5. Fry the patties in a pan with a small amount of vegetable oil until they are golden brown on both sides.

Flavor Qualities and Health Benefits:

Buckwheat patties have a delicate, slightly nutty flavor. The buckwheat provides richness, while the greens and spices add freshness and aroma. This dish pairs well with light vegetable salads or as a standalone snack.

Thanks to the high content of fiber and protein, buckwheat patties are filling and beneficial for digestion. They are also rich in iron and magnesium, making them an excellent choice for maintaining energy and overall body tone.

These patties are a great addition to your diet, especially if you are health-conscious and looking to diversify your menu with tasty and nutritious dishes.
