Recipe- Mushroom and Spinach Buckwheat Risotto – Vegan + Gluten Free


  • 1 onion, diced
  • 4-6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 12 medium roughly chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon salt (to taste)
  • 1 cup buckwheat, uncooked
  • 3 cups vegan broth
  • 2 cups spinach, chopped
  • 2 teaspoon nutritional yeast (optional)
  • 1-2 teaspoons lime juice
  • coconut oil


  1. Heat a large pot over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, and a little coconut oil stirring occasionally, until softened
  2.  Add mushrooms, thyme, salt,  until mushrooms are softened
  3. Add buckwheat and stir until well coated
  4.  Add vegan broth 1/2 cup at a time, stirring well, and allowing the buckwheat to soak up all the liquid before adding more – this takes about 3-5 minutes or so each time.
  5. Once you’ve added almost all the broth, add the spinach, nutritional yeast, lime juice and the rest of the broth and stir until the spinach is wilted, about 2-3 minutes. Taste, and add more salt, pepper, or lime juice if needed. Serve immediately.
