Well I made it with water as the recipe says and it was ok. If you have ever cooked brown rice it has the same sort of smell, I added a small amout of sweetner and it was quite nice. I think I could get used to the taste, bit like eating brown bread at first you didnt like it but as you know its good for you you get used to it. I tried a bit in with yogurt and had it cold and it was great, and as it has so many health benefits I am gonna stick with it. It is not a grain at all but a fruit seed from the Rhubarb family.And best of all its FREE
1 and half cups water to 1/3 cup grits. simmer on hob for about 10/15 mins stirring occasionally. add sweetner or fresh fruit etc. Have to say it was very filling and lasted hours which for me is a first. Recipe says it serves two.
yeah I got it in Tesco in the wholefood section. If you have a polish food section you can get it in there as well only you will have to ask the name I have bought it in a box with 5 boil in bags, weird name. lol x
Hi eye6769, I've just been informed by my s/w coach it's a tweak and can damage slimming world progress. Have you heard anything like this before! I only used buckwheat water and skimmed milk so i thought it was free apart from hexA?

Ask your SW consultant to look into it again, you aren’t altering the buckwheat just cooking it as you usually would, so it is NOT a tweak. However if you were to make it into flour then yes it would be a tweak. Hope this helps x
