What is Buckwheat for?

Despite its name, buckwheat is not related to wheat and is thus gluten-free. Instead it is a seed that comes from the plant Fagopyrum esculentum. It belongs to a group of foods commonly called pseudocereals. They are rich in protein and fiber, as well as a variety of antioxidants and other nutrients, which leads many people to consider buckwheat a superfood.
