i find buckwheat tasty. you can use buckwheat flour in pancakes, by adding it to granola bars, you can even sprout it and eat the greens in your salad.
it’s a gluten-free grain that has been associated with reducing cholesterol, improving circulation, and might even be able to treat type II diabetes.
this is a simple way to cook it up as a hardy breakfast, especially great on those cold foggy mornings.

- 1in a large frying pan or skillet toast the buckwheat dry over high heat. after about 5 minutes over heat, with continuously stirring, they should start to turn toasty brown. make sure you get them before they start to burn. (note: if you are using toasted buckwheat you can skip this step.)
- 2add the salt to the water and bring to a boil.
- 3add the toasted buckwheat and boil on high, while stirring occasionally. cook until all the water has boiled off, which takes about 10 minutes.
- 4while still over heat add the earth balance and stir completely in. serve warm.
