Buckwheat Porridge

Did you know that buckwheat isn’t wheat… it’s a seed. 

So crazy, I know :) 

This naturally gluten-free seed is nutrient-dense and is high both in protein and fiber. #boom

Buckwheat seeds, also called “groats” are packed with nutrients and antioxidants and are often referred to as a “superfood”. 

They are also a high source of amino acids, vitamins, minerals all with relatively few calories.

What else do you need in life?! 

This high fiber and easily digestible food can be made into a yummy porridge to mix up your breakfast. 

I always recommend mixing up what you eat! 

Just like I do in my oatmeal, I always add an egg, or two, to this porridge a few minutes before it's done. 

The egg(s) make it fluffy and adds protein! Our bodies love and need protein and adding healthy protein will keep you satiated longer!

Okay, let’s do this.

BUT FIRST! SOAK YOUR BUCKWHEAT!!

Oh and always source organic grouts. See my favorite brand here. 

BUCKWHEAT PORRIDGE

Ingredients: 

  • 2 cups buckwheat groats (soaked overnight)
  • 2 cups coconut milk and/or nut milk (make your own homemade nut milk!)
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 pasture-raised eggs
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup, or raw honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 dash nutmeg, (optional)
  • 1 dash cinnamon, or cardamom (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Optional toppings: 

  • 1/2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1 tbsp freshly ground flax seeds
  • 1/8 cup organic walnuts 
  • Sub maple syrup or coconut palm sugar for honey
  • 1/2 chopped banana
  • 1/2 cup chopped organic berries (blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, and/or raspberries)

Directions: 

  1. Soak 2 cups of buckwheat groats overnight in filtered water with 1 tsp of sea salt.
  2. In the morning drain and rinse the groats. They tend to be slimy so rinsing well is key.
  3. Once rinsed place in a medium-sized saucepan and combine coconut/nut milk and water.
  4. Bring to a boil and then turn low to simmer, with the lid on,  for about 7-10 minutes.
  5. Stir occasionally and test after 5 minutes. Once the groats are fluffy and soft turn off the heat.
  6. Stir in eggs, vanilla, salt, cinnamon, and honey.
  7. Stir to heat and fully cook eggs for about 2-3 minutes. 
  8. Serve over chopped berries and top with raw organic walnuts and any other optional toppings noted above. 
  9. Enjoy
  10. Store any extra in an air-tight glass container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
