Description

Buckwheat is a delicious wheat-free, gluten-free fruit-seed that is used like a cereal grain. Full of healthful vitamins, antioxidants, fiber and minerals, buckwheat can be eaten whole or ground into flour. In Europe and Asia, it is eaten with milk as a porridge or with butter or ghee alongside meats and vegetables. It's incredibly versatile and flavorful. For even greater flavor, toast whole groats before boiling. 

  • Cook and enjoy for breakfast as you would porridge.
  • Add to soups or stews in place of rice, barley or couscous.
  • Grind into flour; combine with wheat, rye or spelt flour, or other gluten free flours such as sorghum and rice, to use for baking or making pancakes and waffles.

Other names: Grechka (гречка), Kasha (каша)
