14 Tasty Recipes with Buckwheat (The Superfood You Have to Try!)

Because it has “wheat” right there in the name and lots of people are familiar with it in its flour form, it’s surprising that buckwheat is not a cereal. It’s actually a seed of an unrelated plant, meaning it fits perfectly into a gluten-free diet. But even those of us who don’t need to avoid gluten can benefit from this nutritious staple. Not only is it an excellent source of fiber, magnesium, copper, and manganese, it also may help people with diabetes by slowing glucose absorption. Finally, some evidence suggests it may helpful in preventing gallstones, heart disease, and other ailments. And for those of you not especially concerned with its nutritional value, it’s also a wonderfully versatile ingredient with a delightful nutty flavor. Here are fourteen wide-ranging buckwheat recipes that showcase just what a fantastic ingredient buckwheat can be.
