Despite its name, buckwheat is not wheat? It is actually considered a pseudo-grain from the rhubarb family and it does not contain gluten. It is very nutritious, containing magnesium, iron, protein, and fiber. It tastes best when ground fresh. Store it in the fridge or freezer because once ground it can go rancid quickly.
Buckwheat’s nutty, earthy flavor makes great pancakes and waffles. By whipping the egg whites in this Buckwheat Waffle recipe you will get a nice, crispy crust. Instead of sugary syrup, warm up some frozen berries for a topping instead!
