Pseudocereals are broadleaf plants (non-grasses) that are used in much the same way as cereals (true cereals are grasses). Their seed can be ground into flour and otherwise used as cereals are. Examples of pseudocereals are amaranth, quinoa and buckwheat. [1]


Quinoa is not a grass, but its seeds have been eaten for 6000 years.
