Organic buckwheat groats are not part of the wheat family! Buckwheat is actually a grass that produces a seed that is 3-D triangular in shape and has a black hull. The hull has been removed in this grain leaving it a greenish yellow colour. It can be ground into flour or cooked whole.
Buckwheat groats are a mild flavoured favourite addition to casseroles, soups and stews or cooked like other grains, as a pilaf- or risotto-style side dish. Cooked buckwheat groats can also be used in salads somewhat like bulgur, semolina, pearl barley or rice, or they can even be used as a hot breakfast cereal with fresh fruit and spices.

I love this when changing up my oatmeal breakfasts. I cook the whole package at one time and divide it up and store it in the fridge. Warm it with chopped fruit, maple syrup, cinnamon and almond milk if you like. It's a great energy loader first thing in the day. Lots of fiber, protein and micro nutrients.
