Buckwheat groats are the hulled seeds of the buckwheat plant. They can be eaten raw when soaked overnight in order to soften them. This breakfast cereal recipe is mega-nutritious when you add all your favorite super foods to the mix.
Buckwheat groats have a mild flavor, but when toasted or roasted, they have a delightfully intense flavor. They also can be steam-cooked like rice for salads and side dishes or ground in your own mill into fresh flour.
