Buckwheat is very common in Russia. It doesn’t contain gluten, and  is  very rich in protein and iron. You can find it in organic cereals, bread and pastry.

There is even  a very popular monodiet during which you are supposed to eat is plain cooked buckwheat (sometimes without salt) or even not cooked buckwheat! Russians eat it with butter, or  meat, sometimes even with milk and sugar. It can also be cooked with meat or separately served as a garnish. Remember that you need twice more water than the buckwheat! While cooking, you can leave buckwheat in the water for a couple of hours or you will need some more time cooking it.
