SHILOH FARMS Buckwheat Groats are light in color with a distinctive triangular shape and a mild, nutty flavor. Rich in fiber, protein, and complex carbohydrates, buckwheat is also an excellent source of vitamins and minerals, particularly magnesium, copper, phosphorus, and B Vitamins.
Technically the hulled seeds of the buckwheat plant, buckwheat is a pseudocereal with many grain-like properties. First cultivated over 8,000 years ago in Southeast Asia, it was one of the first crops introduced to North America by early European settlers and remains a culinary staple in Eastern Europe and the Balkans.
Despite its name, buckwheat contains no wheat or gluten and is actually a common ingredient in many gluten free recipes.
To Cook: Sort and rinse. Add 1 part groats to 2 parts water and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer 15-25 minutes, or until grain is tender and liquid is absorbed.
For more flavor, try toasting the buckwheat before cooking. To do so, coat the groats with 1 Tbsp. of oil for every cup of groats and place in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Toast, stirring frequently, until they become a shade darker and very aromatic, about 4-5 minutes. At this point, add the buckwheat to the boiling water and continue with cooking instructions above.
1. Dress up cooked groats with lots of browned onions and a bit of parsley or dill.
2. Add to soups, stews, casseroles, or whole grain pilafs.
3. Mix with vegetables and herbs for a hearty filling for stuffed peppers or stuffed cabbage.
4. Use groats as a substitute for rice or bulgur.
5. Cook in milk or fruit juice for a tasty hot cereal. Finish with your choice of sweeteners, dried fruits, or nuts.
