How to Cook Buckwheat

Buckwheat is very popular in Russia and the whole post-Soviet space - it has a very pleasant taste and aroma, it contains the best combination of proteins, fibers and vitamins.

I recommend considering these groats, especially if you have small children, are on a diet or care about your family's health - and you want all this to be tasty.

I will describe in a little more detail how to buckwheat is cooked correctly, because it depends on how tasty and aesthetic the food will be. Next I will put recipes with buckwheat, of all kinds, so I recommend that you get supplies from now on from health food stores.


1 cup
2 cups
1 tsp

Step by step

Step 1

To boil buckwheat, it is perfect to use a pot, but not mandatory - I boiled in harder times and in the pan.

So, in a kettle boil 2 glasses of salted water.

The ratio of water when boiling buckwheat is 2 units of water to 1 unit of dry cereal.

Step 2

Until the water boils, wash the buckwheat well, the same process as for rice, in 2-3 waters.

Before cooking, some housewives cook buckwheat on a dry pan, without oil, then it is much tastier. But I usually don't get it, I boil it as it is.

Step 4

When it starts to boil again, make a low heat, cover with a lid and simmer for 30-40 minutes.

Very important! Do not mix buckwheat at all, only in step 3, in the subsequent cooking process there is no need and I do not recommend - otherwise you make porridge before it is ready.

Step 5

After 30-40 minutes we check if it is ready - first of all the buckwheat must absorb all the water in which it boiled, do the test with a spoon. Deepen it in the buckwheat and see if there is still water in the middle of the pan. If not, the hrica is ready - turn off the heat, cover with a lid and let it penetrate well for another 15 minutes.

If there is still water, let it boil for another 10-15 minutes, of course without stirring.

This is the whole procedure, very simple, but important to follow if you want a delicious buckwheat dish. I will put various recipes with buckwheat, mushrooms, meat, etc. and all will have this cooking process at the beginning.

Good appetite!
