Let’s talk about Superfoods.
Have you ever tried buckwheat?
Buckwheat is often confused with a grain because of the way it is cooked and used, but it’s actually a ‘pseudo-cereal’ seed related to rhubarb and sorrel.
It’s a good source of protein, containing all the essential amino acids. It is an excellent source of manganese and magnesium and a good source of selenium, niacin, folate, iron, zinc, copper and phosphorus.
It’s naturally gluten-free and can be used as an alternative to rice, barley, porridge or even flour.
Just to give you an idea, here is the recipe of the Spinach & Chestnut Mushroom Buckwheat that I prepared yesterday using @forestwholefoods organic Buckwheat Groats.
