- 1 cup of buckwheat
- 1.5 glasses of water
- 1 pinch of salt
- 1 teaspoon clarified butter (vegan version: olive or sunflower oil )
The proportion of water
1: 1.5 - this means that 1.5 glasses of water will be needed for 1 cup of buckwheat groats. It is most convenient to measure full glasses and use 2 glasses of groats and 3 glasses of water. You can use a small glass, such as an espresso one, for this.
NOTE: We add groats only to boiling water, below is a step-by-step recipe.
Rinse the buckwheat in a sieve under cold running water.
In a pot with a lid, bring the water to a boil. When the water boils, add a pinch of salt and a teaspoon of clarified butter (in the veggie version, it can be olive or sunflower oil).
Add the millet to the boiling water and stir until the water boils again. Reduce the burner power to half, put the lid on and set the timer for 5 minutes. Do not stir or lift the lid during this time.
After cooking, let the pot with the groats rest for a minimum of 15 minutes (preferably 20 minutes). Still do not lift the lid or stir during this time. The porridge prepared in this way will be loose and tasty.

How to prevent the porridge from overcooking?
Overcooked and mushy buckwheat is not necessarily a bad thing. This version is often used for small children or on the recommendation of a doctor. To get overcooked buckwheat, add more water in the first step. You can use 2 cups of water instead of 1.5 cups for every 1 cup of groats. You can extend the cooking time to 7 minutes.
How to store and reheat groats?
Cooked buckwheat groats can be stored in the refrigerator in a tightly closed container for up to 3 days. The groats can also be frozen and stored in the freezer for up to 3 months.
The best taste is the groats reheated in a pan with butter under the cover. You can also reheat the porridge in the microwave. Start with 30 seconds and repeat until desired temperature is reached.
