As I mentioned earlier, I love buckwheat.
I don’t normally have it in the summer months, because I tend to crave cooler breakfasts, but not that Fall is here (almost ) I am glad to say that buckwheat is slowly making a comeback
What is buckwheat you ask?
I thought the same thing when I saw it at the store one afternoon. It’s resemblance to steel cut oats is what intrigued me.
Many might think, like I did, that buckwheat is a “wheat” product. But guess what… it’s not! Buckwheat is actually a fruit seed, related to rhubarb, and is perfect for those of you who have Celiacs, or are gluten/wheat sensitive.
My favorite way to eat it? Cooked like hot oatmeal!!
Step 1: Boil 3/4- 1 cup water (depending on how liquidy you want it)
Step 2: Pour 1/4 cup buckwheat groats into pot
Step 3: Stir immediately so you won’t get chunks
Step 4: Let simmer (level 2-3 on my stove top) for 5 minutes
Step 5: Pour into bowl and enjoy
My personal favorite recipe for breakfast?
1 tsp chia seeds
1/2 cup blueberries
1 scoop Sunwarrior (or any other brand) vanilla protein
Then I usually top it off with some nut butter, because nothing is better than hot warm buckwheat with drippy nut butters
Love my oats/buckwheat bowls filled with berries
Yummy in my tummy!
It’s so versatile, so I’m going to definitely be doing some experiments this fall
Now, gooooo try it out!!!
