1 cup toasted buckwheat groats
2 cups filtered water
1-2 tablespoon butter
1/2 teaspoon salt


How to cook:
1. Rinse and drain buckwheat well.
2. In a medium sauce pan, combine buckwheat groats with 1 3/4 cups water, 1 tablespoon butter and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Bring to a simmer then cover with a tight fitting lid and simmer on low for 18-20 minutes. Just like with rice, you should hear hissing while it’s cooking and it will get quiet when it’s done. Stir in additional 1 tablespoon butter if desired.
