Buckwheat has a pleasant nutty taste. Despite its name, buckwheat is not a cereal, it's a pseudograin and is related to knotweed. Buckwheat is an ideal alternative to grain and can be used in the kitchen in many different ways. Besides, the abundant flowers of buckwheat provide nectar and pollen for bees.
