then i went on a mad mission all around the internet to find somewhere that would give me a buckwheat porridge recipe, and i found two main types: the soak and process or the boil. and because i don't have a food processor (at least not at the moment) i went with the boiling method! i was convinced after i saw this beautiful breakfast photograph of it, and so this is the recipe i went with.
for 2 people
- take 1/2 cup buckwheat groats and soak overnight, or for at least 20 minutes
once soaked, drain off the liquid and rinse well. then add the groats and 1 cup of water to a saucepan. add your chosen spices and dried fruits, i used 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, a couple drops of vanilla extract and a 1/4 cup organic sultanas.
lay the table all nicely so you can really appreciate your breakfast, no matter how early it is or groggy you feel
boil until all the water has gone, and it looks like this:
serve with sliced fresh banana, organic soya milk, honey and a cup of green tea with lemon
i would definitely give this recipe a massive 5 stars because we've had it every morning since!!
ps. 1 down, 51 to go!
