Stepf's Buckwheat CerealSubmitted by: SP_STEPF
IntroductionI love toasted buckwheat. It has a nutty, slightly sour taste that pairs well with oats, sweet dried fruit, and maple syrup. Add nuts for protein and crunch. I love toasted buckwheat.

They usually come toasted in bulk bins, but you can also buy them raw (would be labeled as such) and toast in a dry skillet over medium heat until fragrant. I like to eat them sprinkled on cereal, with a drizzle of maple syrup if you like extra sweetness. The groats are not sweet.
