Organic buckwheat groats are not part of the wheat family! Buckwheat is actually a grass that produces a seed that is 3-D triangular in shape and has a black hull. The hull has been removed in this grain leaving it a greenish yellow colour. It can be ground into flour or cooked whole.
Buckwheat groats are a mild flavoured favourite addition to casseroles, soups and stews or cooked like other grains, as a pilaf- or risotto-style side dish. Cooked buckwheat groats can also be used in salads somewhat like bulgur, semolina, pearl barley or rice, or they can even be used as a hot breakfast cereal with fresh fruit and spices.
