What can I substitute for buckwheat? I have vomiting within about 20 minutes of eating it. I first noticed this as a teenager ( 50 years ago) and have tried it a few times since with always the same results.

It is fine to just use brown rice or quinoa instead. A little adaptation may be needed depending on the recipe but it should work out fine to substitute. Make sure to rinse quinoa very thoroughly before using.
