I use buckwheat groats to make cookies and bread in my dehydrator. After I soak them I grind them and they form a really sticky dough. I top them with jelly I make out of chia seeds and fruit. I also have a good recipe on my web-site for bread. It's on the recipe tab at www.kgardener.com.
Oh my gosh, I never would have thought of this. Thank you! I'm always looking for something new to add because I need to rotate my foods so I don't develop new sensitivities/allergies. I bet this *does* make a yummy raw granola!
I soak buckwheat groats for 3-4 hours and eat them without dehydrating, as the base for a salad I make. It's a staple for me, SO nutritious and tastes great! Also, it has a sort of grounding property I think, functions like a carby base for flavours, sort of like cooked rice.
I'll post a recipe soon, but basically it's about a cup of soaked, rinsed, un-sprouted, un-dehydrated raw buckwheat groats, with chopped fresh tomato, sun dried tomato, plenty of fresh herbs, mushrooms (key), fresh corn, and some avocado if desired. Add either celtic salt or soy sauce to taste, and a bit of agave if you want a touch of sweetness. My non-raw friends love it!
I love raw buckwheat ive been eating 3 cups of it everyday, but its been a week since i stopped, I felt that if I continued eating dehydrated buckwheat I would gain weight, would I? I dont eat any other fats. Should I continue eating it?
