Organic Raw Buckwheat by Hatton Hill Organic. Organically grown, harvested and dried in Ukraine. Packed in the UK.

Buckwheat is believed to have been first cultivated more than 8,000 years ago in Southeast Asia. It was one of the first crops introduced to North America by early European settlers and it's a staple food in much of Eastern Europe. 

Despite its name, buckwheat has nothing to do with wheat: it's a cereal, and naturally gluten-free. Hatton Hill Organic’s raw buckwheat consists of the heart-shaped seeds of the buckwheat plant, which is part of the rhubarb family. The seeds have a moreish nutty flavour, and they're naturally gluten-free.

Buckwheat is a delicious, nutritious way to vary your diet away from carbohydrates such as rice, couscous, potatoes and pasta. Use it as a side dish for stews, curries and other saucy preparations, toss it into salads, and replace the rice in risotto- and pilaf-style dishes with our buckwheat.

How about mixing it up with onions, garlic, herbs and other ingredients (vegetables, nuts... anything that takes your fancy, really!) and using the mix to make roasted stuffed peppers and other vegetables? Try adding it to soups and casseroles. 

Buckwheat is also fantastic for baking, giving homemade cookies and crackers a satisfying texture and the goodness of whole grains. If you're feeling like spoiling your kids with a sweet treat that's also a stealthy health food, try whipping up a chocolately breakfast cereal by mixing our raw buckwheat up with a little cocoa powder, honey and coconut oil and baking it – once it cools, it's ready to serve, and can be kept fresh in an airtight jar for up to a month. Yum! 

Like rice and other grains, buckwheat is so incredibly versatile that its uses are practically limitless!
