Buckwheat is actually quite misleading by name because it isn’t related to wheat as it isn’t a grass or even a grain.

Buckwheat is actually related to sorrel and rhubarb! It is a pseudocereal, which is essentially a seed rich in complex carbohydrates, consumed as cereal grains but don’t grow on grasses.

Other common pseudocereals include quinoa and amaranth.

Cooking with Raw Buckwheat

Rinse in cold water then add 1 part buckwheat to 3 parts water. Bring to the boil then simmer for approximately 15-20 minutes until the water is absorbed.

You can make an amazing porridge – just place 2 cups buckwheat groats that have been soaked overnight, drained and rinsed) in a food processor and pulse a few times to break down.

Then add 1 cup milk of your choice, 1 vanilla bean (seeds scraped out), ¼ cup maple syrup, 1 tsp cinnamon,1 tbsp ground flax and a pinch of sea salt.

Process until smooth and then pulse in 1/3 cup shredded coconut and serve. Try adding fresh berries, chopped nuts, or sliced bananas.

You can also use the groats to make muffins, burgers, bread, or add to a salad or stir fry. 

Important – if you are adding the groats to a salad or anything else, they must be cooked first to soften otherwise you’ll break your teeth biting down onto them!!
