Breakfast: Simple Buckwheat Porridge Makes: 4 servings Ingredients 2 cups water 1 cup buckwheat groats 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoon maple syrup 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 cup almond milk Options to add on top Golden mulberries or raisin or chopped dates Handful flax seeds 2 tablespoon chia seeds shredded coconut Fresh fruit Directions Soak the buckwheat for a few hours (optional) Add the water and groats to a soup pot. Add inthesalt,cinnamon,maplesyrup,vanilla.Bringtoaboil,cover withlidandreduceto asimmer. Allow groats to simmer for at least ten minutes – check the texture of the groats. They should be squishy, but not mushyor too watery. Once the groats have cooked to a tender state with all the water absorbed, add in the milk and continue to simmer with the lid off. Add the chia seeds, flax seeds and dried fruit–and anything else that you want to mix into the porridge. Simmer until nice and thick. Then turn off heat. I like to allow my groats to col and thicken about ten minutes before serving. Serve with fresh or thawed fruit, another splash of soy milk and some optional spices and nuts on top. Another option is to make the groats into a powder in a blender before cooking to make a creamy porridge.
