Buckwheat is not a cereal or a grass but in fact a fruit seed. Therefore there is no wheat with this buck! By soaking the buckwheat groats or any garins for that matter, neutralises the phytic acid, meaning that the nutrients are more readily available for absorption.
Once sprouted , buckwheat groats are delicious added to cereals or dehydrtaed as an amazing snack.
1 cup organic buckwheat groats
2 cups filtered water
Rinse buckwheat groats in a strainer, then place in a glass bowl (pyrex is perfect). Cover with water, put a lid on then leave for around 2 hours.
Tip buckwheat into a strainer and rinse with cool water, continue rinsing until the water runs clear. The buckwheat can produce a very thick starchy fluid when soaked. Drain thoroughly.
Then place in a bowl in an area out of direct sunlight. Rinse and drain again every 4 hours. Buckwheat should be sprouted in about 12 hours. Then store in the refridgerator and use in salads or dehydrate to make some delicious snacks, like our yummy buckwheat snacks.
