Warming Buckwheat with Sunflower Seeds

This buckwheat recipe is simple and nutritious!  It is gluten-free and is not a grain, it is a seed.  Also, it is warming and so great for the winter.


1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup buckwheat groats
1/2 tsp. Himalayan salt
2 cups water
Handful of sauteed mushrooms (optional)


  1. Dry sauté sunflowers seeds in a sauce pan.
  2. Add buckwheat after a few minutes.
  3. Sauté until golden brown.
  4. Add salt and water.
  5. Bring to a boil and cover with a tight lid.
  6. Simmer until all the water is absorbed – approximately 40 minutes.
  7. Serve with vegetables. This tastes delicious with the simple addition of sauteed mushrooms.

There is a little Russian store in my neighbourhood that has the best products (they prefer organic) and prices where I buy this brand of buckwheat groats: Russkoe Pole Buckwheat Groats, 31.7 oz
