My new favorite is green wheat, sold under trad name freekeh. Easy to fix, loaded with protein, tasty, toasty flavor that mixes well with fruits (think grilled apricots, peaches, or figs) and veggies. Generally,I like most whole grains. Sharon Gilbert (The Travel Cook.com)
Buckwheat is not a grain.
I love buckwheat. I cook it (make sure it's not too mushy, grains need to be pretty dry and falling apart) after roasting the grain. Then I fry an onion (I use a mix of sunflower oil and European-style butter) until golden and crispy and add it to the grain along with a few chopped hard-boiled eggs. It's delicious!
I like Flax. Also, A flax seed floating on an eyeball will collect grit etc and when easily removed leaves your eye clean and comfortable. I have tried this many times. My dad helped us this way when we wew kids on the farm in North Dakota, where most flax is grown.
I like popcorn and never think of it as a whole grain. I usually sprinkle it with my favorite curry powder mixed with sea salt. It's so good! I also like barley in home made beef soup and in my gramma's ham and vegetable barley soup.
Buckwheat is my favorite. Toasted buckwheat groats. Nutty.
