Savoury Carrot Buckwheat Bread.

Change up your usual toast with this gluten free bread option. It has more like a cake texture which means it's really simple to make with no kneading or proving or taking loads of time.



I used buckwheat flour which, despite the name, is actually not related to what at all and is also gluten free. Buckwheat also contains a constituent called rutin which is incredibly good for our vascular system to keep our veins and blood circulation strong and healthy. For anyone out there with varicose veins or visible broken capillaries, rutin is a plant compound that you should be including into your diet.
