This buckwheat recipe is simple and nutritious!  It is gluten free, vegan, and dairy free. Buckwheat is not a grain and it is a seed. 


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


  1. Dry sauté sunflowers seeds in sauce pan.
  2. Add buckwheat after a few minutes.
  3. Sauté until golden brown.
  4. Add sea 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
