We like Buckwheat best grown as microgreens, but you can also grow them in a colander! Here's how!
- Begin with 1 cup of raw buckwheat, rinse thoroughly, and drain. Pour the sprouts into a container (we use a wide-mouth jar) and fill with 2-3 times the amount of water. Let sit 4-6 hours (Or just overnight).
- Pour into a colander and rinse thoroughly. (Soaked buckwheat happens to be surrounded by a bit of a syrupy sort of liquid after soaking that feels a bit like squash seeds fresh from the fruit. Just keep rinsing and draining a few times until you feel it's rinsed as well as it's going to be. You'll know because there comes a point that the rinsing you're doing isn't making too much of a difference.)
- Line your colander with a paper towel or clean dish cloth and just line the bottom with your soaked seeds, spreading them out as much as possible.
Cover your colander with a plate or a dish towel to keep out bugs.
- Now, put your covered sprouts in an out-of-the-way place, somewhere you won't forget about it to rinse it regularly. You're going to rinse and drain these sprouts on top of the paper towel with clean, filtered water 3 times/day. If they start to bunch up in the colander, just spread them back out with your fingers.
