Method

* When I say pumpkin puree, you can either buy it already ready in your local supermarket,

*The night before,  simply bring water to boil and then add 2 cups of thinly cut butternut. Let it cook for about 15mins mins (depending how thinly you cut the slices) or until soft. Remove the water and let it cool down. Store in the fridge and it'll be ready to use the next day. 

Add all ingredients in a pot (that you can place in the oven)

Mix everything well together to ensure the buckwheat is well assimilated

Place in the oven @200C for 10mins 

Carefully remove (don't burn yourself!) and add all your toppings.
