54: A Little Flower-Power - Buckwheat

Released February 27, 2023 by Sue's Healthy Minutes with Sue Becker | The Bread Beckers


In this episode of Sue's Healthy Minutes, Sue Becker introduces us to another little seed that we will want to include in our whole foods menu - Buckwheat. But, in spite of its name, buckwheat is not related to wheat at all, nor is it even a grain. Buckwheat, however, can be used in similar ways to grains. It can be milled into flour, boiled whole and eaten, and even enjoyed raw to add a little crunch to salads or granola. Buckwheat flour is also an excellent choice for making pancakes, muffins, and crepes. Crepes made with buckwheat flour are less delicate, and this allows them to work very well when used as wraps and tortillas.
