Buckwheat porridge

This is a great recipe for those chilly winter mornings! I like regular porridge but its great to have options, buckwheat is gluten-free, packed with protein, fiber, can lower cholesterol and reduce blood pressure levels meaning its great for heart health too.

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 1 cup buckwheat

  • 2 cups coconut OR almond milk

  • 2 cup water

  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder

  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar

  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • pinch of salt


Method

  1. 1.soak the buckwheat in water for a few hours or overnight

  2. strain and rinse with water

  3. add all ingredients into a pot and simmer (stirring occasionally) until the buckwheat is soft but still holds its shape, this will take around 15 minutes.

  4. serve with any toppings and enjoy!


NOTE: this recipe will keep for around 4-5 days in the fridge, it tends to soak up the liquid though so you might need to add extra water or milk when reheating it.
