10 Awesome Healthy Recipes Using Buckwheat

Talk about feeling good! I’ve been on a buckwheat kick for the past week or so. I have only started using buckwheat for the past couple of months, and I am hooked! Buckwheat is full of healthful easily digestible proteins, it draws out retained water from the body, and is non-allergenic. Buckwheat is generally free of chemicals, as it grows so quickly and easily that it doesn't "need" them. How's that for awesome? Seen Oprah lately? One of her cohort physicians, Dr. Perricone, is even calling it a superfood!

There are a couple of specific recipes that I am really loving these days(see below). And guess what? I’m eating some raw chocolate buckwheat treats right now! In fact, the whole family loves them!

Important notes on Buckwheat:

• Make sure (unless the recipe states otherwise) to get raw buckwheat (sometimes sprouted and dehydrated) and not toasted/roasted buckwheat, (also known as Kasha) as it has a completely different flavour and is much stronger. What you want is the light-coloured buckwheat.

• Buckwheat is Gluten-Free!

• Very high in Manganese, Magnesium, Fiber and Flavonoids (extended information on Buckwheat)

The recipes I hae selected are those which include healthy whole-food ingredients, or are at least healthier versions of typical recipes (such as pancakes, muffins, and crackers. They are all vegan, as you may have guessed!

    I love sprouted buckwheat. It can be used in so many ways. I've written an article on how to sprout it..tried to post instructions here, but they keep taking it down, saying it's not original...the directions are obviously going to be the same...but if you want to make great crunchy snacks..try sprouting and dehydrating buckwheat...adding cacao and other yummy ingredients. You can find the directions at just search for Buckwheat or click on Sprouting in the drop down menu.
