What the heck is buckwheat? Buckwheat is not itself a cereal. It's actually an herb. The seeds of the buckwheat plant are used to make buckwheat flour. Buckwheat originated in Russia. You may have heard the term "Kasha" associated with buckwheat. That's because kasha is roasted buckwheat seeds.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Checkers for this recipe.

I have worked for one of the world's largest buckwheat companies for over 10 years. Buckwheat is in NO way an herb! It is actually a fruit, related to the rhubarb plant and Kasha IS the meaning of "roasted buckwheat". Please do not post comments if you are unsure of what you are talking about.

Wow. I'm Gluten Intolerant and scanned this recipe thinking it would be good to try. After reading the comments I got quite the education on the buckwheat grain/seed/herb. Thanks everyone. I am about to attempt these waffles now and will leave a comment for those curious as to how the recipe turns out!

I just got a belgian waffle maker making this now. Looks good! Please, buckwheat is not an herb. Many people think this and I would like to dispel this idea. for something to be herbaceous does not mean the seed is an herb. Cereals are grasses but that is a very specific family. Is Quinoa seed a herb, no, is flax seed a herb, no, is cumin seed a herb, no, are beans and herb, no, and neither is black pepper. Buckwheat is just not a grass (cereal grain, Poaceae family). Buckwheat grows herbaceous but we don't eat the leaves! we don't eat bean leaves either!

Kasha DOES NOT mean "roasted buckweat seeds". The Russian word for buckweat is "grechka". Kasha is a term that is used to refer to ANY cooked grain/cereal dish, i.e. rice kasha, buckweat kasha, oatmeal kasha, and so on.
