About Organic Unroasted Buckwheat

This Buckwheat is unroasted for the full fibre and maximum manganese and magnesium.

Energising and nutritious, buckwheat is available throughout the year and can be served as an alternative to rice or made into porridge. While many people think that buckwheat is a cereal grain, it is actually a fruit seed that is related to rhubarb and sorrel making it a suitable substitute for people who are sensitive to wheat or other grains that contain protein glutens.

To cook it, rinse it 2-3 times in a bowl. Place the buckwheat in a pot, add 2 cups of water, set to medium high heat, and add a lid. After 15-20 minutes all the water should be absorbed and the buckwheat will be cooked. Alternatively for a crunchier version. Bring 2 cups of water to a boil, then add the buckwheat, put on the lid, and turn the heat down. After 15 minutes remove from heat and let sit for another 10 minutes. This will make the buckwheat firmer with a more crunchy texture

Fantastic, very high quality buckwheat.  I soak it for 20-30 min - no more. Then I  rinse it out once and sprout it in an UNGLAZED, Rumertof type clay  cooker. The clay pot will absorb all moisture so need for rinsing. After day and a half (in the right conditions) you will have unbelievable, almost dry  sprouts with beautiful tails. It works every time. Keep it in the fridge and rinse only before cooking or serving.

This green unroasted buckwheat is amazing for sprouting! Try soaking for 2-3 hours, rinsing thoroughly and then in around 6 hours they are ready to eat, wait for one more day and they'll be properly sprouted and ready for adding to salads or breakfast. Make sure you rinse them properly though!

Awesome.Good for cooking. I make sprouts for salads, good source of protein.

Buckwheat is my new favourite food. It has really filled the gap now I am having to avoid pasta and rice.

A surprisingly tasty alternative to porridge oats in the morning. I eat it with a pear cut up and sprinkled on top.

Raw Vegan Gluten Free Raspberry and Coconut Sprouted Buckwheat Porridge Recipe

Summary: If you have never tried raw buckwheat porridge, then you are in for a treat ! Buckwheat is actually not related to wheat, it is not a grain at all, it is known as a pseudo-grain seed, along with quinoa, amaranth and millet, which are all very high in protein. And it has no gluten, so it is safe to eat for people avoiding wheat, gluten and grains all together. The variations for raw buckwheat porridge are endless, but the basic idea is to soak then sprout the buckwheat, then blend it with water or a vegan milk, fruits and / or sweetener of our choice. And there you have it : creamy, high fibre, high protein, yet fresh and light, breakfast goodness, perfect for a summer morning. In this recipe, I use coconut milk for that exotic flavour, raspberries for tart sweetness and berry nutrition, and finally bananas for extra goodness and sweetness.
