Buckwheat is a Fruit Seed
Types of Buckwheat
It makes a great side dish as well as the base for a salad. It can be simmmered similar to other “grains”. Use 1 cup buckwheat to 2 cups water, bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for approximately 20 minutes. Add some fresh fruit, nuts, and milk alternative for a super breakfast.
One of my favorite ways to eat buckwheat is a granola called Higher Power gRAWnola from Ashland, OR. The ingredients include organic sprouted buckwheat groats, organic Thompson seedless raisins, organic sprouted walnuts, organic sprouted pumpkin seeds, organic coconut, organic dates, wild unheated honey, organic vanilla, organic cinnamon. Not only is it sprouted and gluten free, it’s organic too. You can find this product at www.HigherPower.biz. It’s fabulous!
