What Is Buckwheat?

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 and therefore often consumed as cereal. Other pseudocereals include quinoa and amaranth.

How To Cook Raw Buckwheat Groats

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

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

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

Amazing Buckwheat Porridge Recipe

Place 2 cups of 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.
