Buckwheat Groats

Buckwheat is not a wheat, but a seed from a rhubarb relative. Buckwheat is a gluten free grain. Buckwheat is high in all 8 essential amino acids, and high in calcium, vitamin E, and B vitamins. Unroasted buckwheat has a more mild flavor pairing well with delicately flavored foods.

Dry roasted in butter or oil before boiling will give buckwheat groats a nutty flavor. Combine with quinoa for a lighter dish (same time and water). Great mixed into cold pasta salads or served with cooked winter squash. Pre-Roasted buckwheat is also called kasha.
