Though used as a grain, buckwheat groats are actually the seeds of an herb. Buckwheat groats are obtained by cold hulling whole organic buckwheat. This buckwheat is grown in Canada.
Bring 1 cup water to boil. Gently add 1/2 cup of buckwheat. Cover, reduce heat to minimum and let simmer without mixing until all kernels are tender and water has evaporated (approximately 10 to 15 minutes). Midway through cooking, adding 1/2 cup of sautéed vegetables may be an option.
For a pilaf or side dish, first rinse 1 cup buckwheat groats and pan roast in a dry skillet until brown. Add 1 beaten egg and 1 1/2 cups water. Bring to a boil, and then reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer approximately 20 minutes or until all the water has been absorbed.
For a breakfast cereal, add 1 cup buckwheat groats to 2 1/2 cups boiling water. Cover and simmer about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. To make buckwheat groats into Kasha, simply toast the grains in a dry skillet before cooking.
