Wheat free! Buckwheat is proof that names can be misleading. A white triangular seed with a green or tan coloured skin, it isn’t technically a grain but rather the seed of a broadleaf plant related to rhubarb. Unlike the name suggests, buckwheat contains no wheat making it a naturally gluten free grain, and so it is perfect for those choosing not to incorporate gluten into their diets. Energizing and nutritious, buckwheat is available throughout the year and can be served as an alternative to rice or made into porridge.

How To Use
Its soft, subtle, nutty flavour makes it a perfect accompaniment to many dishes, or an ideal base for stews, salads, soups or even breakfast cereal. To prepare, rinse and bring one part buckwheat and two parts water to the boil and then simmer for thirty minutes. The seeds double in size when cooked so one cup dry will make two cups cooked.
