Buckwheat in a slow cooker

It is good to cook buckwheat in a multicooker due to the heating effect from all sides and the greater retention of moisture, because in this case the water practically does not evaporate outside.


The proportions of buckwheat and water in a multicooker are standard 1: 2, but for a thinner porridge, pour a little more water.

If the multicooker has a pressure cooker option, then you can cook buckwheat even faster: with the valve closed, only 8 minutes of cooking will be enough. Before opening the multicooker, open the air outlet valve.

By the way, buckwheat can be cooked and without cooking:


1. Sort buckwheat before cooking, rinse and heat. Boil a kettle of water, pour boiling water over the buckwheat so that it is completely covered with it, add salt.

2. Set the multicooker to keep warm or warm.

3. Insist buckwheat on this mode for 1 hour.


4. Add oil to buckwheat and close the multicooker for another 10 minutes.
