What Is Organic Roasted Buckwheat (Kasha)?
Energizing and nutritious, Buckwheat is a plant cultivated for its grain like groats, which are small, crunchy and have a distinctly triangular appearance. It is available throughout the year and can be served as an alternative to rice or made into a porridge.
It has been a staple in eastern European diets for decades and while many people think that buckwheat is a cereal grain, it is actually a fruit seed, related to rhubarb and sorrel. This means that buckwheat doesn't produce gluten as its not closely related to wheat or other similar species!
There are various popular Buckwheat Preparations available other than Raw Buckwheat, with the most popular alternatives being Buckwheat Flour and Roasted Buckwheat (Known as Kasha)
Why Should I Get Organic Roasted Buckwheat (Kasha)?
Kasha is darker in colour, crunchier and has a more refined flavour than raw buckwheat. It is generally better suited to savoury dishes which tend to compliment its toasted flavour. Kasha can still be used in just the same manner as raw buckwheat making a good alternative to rice and porridge.
The roasting process may change the flavour and aroma of the buckwheat somewhat however it is still equally Energizing and nutritious, 340g provides more than 20% of your RDA of fibre, it also has 8 of the Essential Amino Acids your body needs, being especially rich in lysine - which is fortunate as typically lysine occurs infrequently in true cereal grains. Kasha is also high in Iron, B-Vitamins, phosphorous, potassium, iron and calcium.
It also just so happens to be as easy to cook as it is to eat, to prepare: just Combine 1 cup of buckwheat groats with 2 cups of water in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook 10 to 12 minutes, let stand for 5 minutes. From there you can make porridge, use it as a rice or couscous substitute , the imagination knows no limits!
