Millet & Buckwheat with Sunflower Seeds

This is millet and buckwheat recipe is a favorite of mine; it is very yummy and mostly alkaline.  The buckwheat with its full flavour enhances the very light flavour of the millet.

Gluten-free millet provides a host of nutrients, has a sweet nutty flavour, and is considered to be one of the most digestible and non-allergenic grains available.  It is one of the few grains that is alkalizing to the body.

  1. Where do I find Millet? Our Supermarket is not carrying Millet or Buckwheat and we don’t have any Healthfood Stores like Whole Foods here.

  2. hmmm not sure where to send you Barbara. In Canada most of our bigger supermarkets sell it as well as health food stores. I know someone who has a business supplying grains; I will find his contact details and let you know.

  3. Thanks for the Reply Diana.
    Yes I can get Millet Flour here, but not the grains.For grains I have to drive well over an hour to the nearest Whole Foods.

  4. You know Barbara, it maybe better just to drive over to do a once every 2 months trip to a health food store rather then paying what you would have to for shipping it. Just thinking. 🙂

  5. thanks for the replyTrue, its about 150kmbut I guess it worth it. In IA you have not much choices of good food to buyFarmer Market is limited to the Summer and the Stores around here do not care a good variety of healthy Food. Next Time I am in Madison(WI) I will get Millet .

  6. That sounds good barbara. Make sure you have a good list of food to buy when you get there to stock you up. I did notice when I was in the US that the supermarkets to not have as many of what we call ‘health foods’.

  7. thanks so that is so true, but I am only for a certain Time in IA,av (Travel Nursing) and then move on to Boston, before I leave the Country to return home to Germany.
    In Germany I never have the Problem of buying Healthy Food .In the US it is like cat and mouse +plus most of the conventional Food is chemical altered, GMO Food, you really have to read in between the Lines what’s all in it.
    One of the Reasons so many Americans are sick due to being overweight.
    Have a great day

    1. Linda, Quinoa cooks differently than millet so I would not replace and would not dry roast quinoa.
      Also, millet is a more economical grain. I do love Quinoa just not sure about doing it this way as it tastes so good on it’s own.
