Sprouting buckwheat

Sprouting buckwheat | Healthy Recipes and Tips for Healthy Living | Scoop.it

o why sprout it? Well, check out what happens when buckwheat begins to germinate:

the amount of protein rises while starch levels drop;increases the levels of vitamins E, A and C;vitamins and minerals such as B vitamins, iron, magnesium, boron and calcium become bio-available ie. more easily assimilated; andenzyme-inhibitors are de-activated, making for easier digestion.

Kathy Heidebrecht's curator insight, November 18, 2013 4:11 PM

When you are purchasing buckwheat just make sure that it’s not already toasted (also known as ‘kasha’) as this won’t sprout.

Makes approximately 2 cups

1 cup of buckwheat groats
3 cups of room temperature water

Place buckwheat in a strainer and rinse well with water.

Place buckwheat in a bowl and add water.  Leave to soak for 15 minutes – 1 hour. Do not leave buckwheat soaking for longer than this otherwise it may not germinate. 

 

Pour buckwheat back into strainer and rinse until the water runs clear – a lot of starch is released during the soaking process.  Ensure that the buckwheat is well drained then empty into a bowl (or simply place the strainer full of buckwheat over a bowl as I do) and cover with a clean tea towel to allow airflow. 

 

You will need to rinse the buckwheat 2 to 3 times a day until ‘tails’ emerge.**  These will usually form within 1-3 days depending on temperature and humidity. *For optimal flavour sprouts should be no longer than the buckwheat itself.

 

Once sprouted to desired length, rinse thoroughly to ensure any excess starch is removed.  Sprouted buckwheat can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

 

If you would like to dry your buckwheat for future use (it will store well for several months in an air tight jar), place in the oven on the lowest temperature possible for 6-8 hours.
