Instructions for sprouting buckwheat:
Buckwheat is naturally gluten-free. It is a seed, not a grain. Dry seeds are dormant, but once they are soaked and sprouted, buckwheat groats open up to power house of nutrients. They are alkalizing and contain an excellent source of complex carbohydrates, low in fat, high in soluble and insoluble fiber, folate, zinc, protein, iron, magnesium, phytonutrients, and several other nutrients.
1. Mix 2-3 parts water to 1-part buckwheat.
2. The buckwheat seeds will absorb a lot of water while soaking.
3. Soak for about 30 minutes.
4. Drain at least 5 times until water in the buckwheat become clear.
5. It is optional to let the buckwheat dry and continue sprouting at room temperature for several days, rinsing once per day. Once buckwheat is fully sprouted, long tails emerge from the seed.
6. Buckwheat is best eaten right away or dehydrated at 115 degrees for long-term storage.
Assembling Superfood Culture Almond Yogurt:
1. Pour ½ cup of cultured almond yogurt onto the bowl.
2. Add any of the above toppings and superfoods and 1-2 tablespoons of sprouted buckwheat.
3. Best served right away.
Cultured almond yogurt contains predigested nutrients that become much easier to assimilate, metabolize, and convert into energy. Cultured yogurt is a great way to increase probiotics which help balance the good bacteria and reduce the bad bacteria for an optimally functioning digestive system.
