Despite its name, buckwheat is actually a seed, rather than a grain (like wheat). Surprisingly, it's related to rhubarb, not other grasses such as wheat, grass or maize. It’s also known as a ‘pseudocereal’ for this reason. As it’s wheat-free, it’s used most commonly as a gluten-free alternative in baking, or as a grain.

Buckwheat ‘grains’ or seeds, are also known as ‘groats’ and can be simmered until tender. It’s common practice to wash the grains well before use, but when soaked and then baked, they add crunch to granolas and salads. When soaked and blended before simmering, the buckwheat breaks down into a porridge.
