Ingredients

  • 1 cup dry buckwheat groats, soaked in water overnight
  • 1/2 cup non dairy milk
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup golden raisins + extra to sprinkle on top
  • 1/2 granny smith apple, cut into matchsticks
  • drizzle of honey optional
  • drizzle of nut butter optional

If serving hot:

  • 1/2 cup non dairy milk

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl soak your buckwheat groats in water overnight. In the morning, drain and rinse your groats thoroughly.
  2. Once rinsed, add your buckwheat groats to a blender or food processor along with non dairy milk, maple syrup, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt. Blend until smooth.
  3. If eating cold (my favorite way), pour your porridge into a bowl, and mix in your golden raisins. Top with extra raisins, honey, nut butter, and a few extra buckwheat groats.
  4. If eating warm, pour your porridge into a pot and heat over medium low heat. Add in 1/2 cup non dairy milk and whisk CONSTANTLY until the porridge is warm. (If you don't stir it constantly, it will clump really fast.) Mix in your golden raisins. Top with extra raisins, honey, nut butter, and a few extra buckwheat groats.
  5. EAT UP.
