Buckwheat is a pseudocereal. Pseudocereals are seeds that are consumed as cereal grains but don't grow on grasses. Other common pseudocereals include quinoa and amaranth.
Buckwheat has a wonderful flavor, it has a rich history in Asia, where it is used for traditional noodles such as soba, and in Eastern Europe, where it is used to make a porridge called kasha.
