French Buckwheat Neatloaf

We love neatloaf in this family and my favorite neatloaf recipe is this one using buckwheat. It’s easy and fast to make compared to other recipes, so it’s a perfect when you’re in a rush. We ate our neatloaf with rosemary roasted potatoes and large leafy green salad made with lettuce from our neighbors garden.

1 cup creamy buckwheat cereal such as Bob’s Red Mill
1 cup water
½ cup sun dried tomatoes
½ cup dried mushrooms, I used chanticleers
2 tsp. dried French herbs
2 tsp. salt
½ tsp. black pepper
¾ cup grated cheese
Preheat oven to F400.
Heat water and soak the sun dried tomatoes and dried mushrooms for 30-60 minutes. Place soaked mushrooms, tomatoes and the soaking water in a blender and mix for 20 seconds. Combine this with buckwheat cereal, French herbs, salt and pepper in a saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring often. Keep cooking on medium heat while stirring until it thickens. Pour batter into a greased small loaf pan. Bake for 20-30 minutes, until the loaf is solid and stiff.
