Simple technology of cooking cereals

In the current situation in our country, we need to be prepared for anything. And even the fact that you may not be able to use the stove and cook a full meal. That's why OBOZREVATEL's editorial team will tell you about cereals that can be cooked even without boiling.

Tips for cooking cereals without boiling are published on the _pohydayka_ Instagram page.

Buckwheat

You can simply pour water over these groats. Not boiling water, but clean water at room temperature in a ratio of 1:2.

It should be infused in water for about 5 hours, or preferably 8-10. After that, you can eat it.

The secret is that brown buckwheat is already cooked – the package says that it is roasted and dried. Therefore, plain water will be enough to make the cereal swell.

Yachka
