Buckwheat groats are gluten free seeds from a plant related to rhubarb. First cultivated in Southeast Asia thousands of years age, in time buckwheat journeyed west and took root in Eastern Europe, where it became the star of many classic dishes. Buckwheat provides complete protein, including all the essential amino acids. Use buckwheat groats in any recipe that calls for whole grains. The bold flavor is delicious in porridge, pilaf, soups and salads.
