Creamy Buckwheat Porridge

buckwheat creme

Either savory or sweet, buckwheat is always a good idea. I can run out a lot of things, but never out of buckwheat. I can pretty much say I eat buckwheat more or less every day. The taste is amazing, a combination of rice and wheat. But buckwheat is absolutely free of wheat, grain and gluten. It’s a warming (yang) food that I crave most in the winter. And it’s versatile. You can’t go wrong with this seed. It’s nature’s most perfect gift. It looks and is used as a cereal grain, but in fact buckwheat is a fruit seed closely related to rhubarb. A gluten-free ‘grain’! Oh yeah! This creamy buckwheat cream is a delicious variation on the cooked buckwheat.

buckwheat creme I always like to soak my nuts and buckwheat. I noticed my digestion is way better if I do so. Simply place the buckwheat and nuts in two separate jars, cover with water and leave for a night to soak. Rinse well and drain.

Description

This breakfast looks like dessert! But no worries this creamy buckwheat recipe is all good and easy to make and digest.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 230 gram raw hulled buckwheat groats
  • 1 cup of walnuts and/or cashews
  • juice of one grapefruit or orange of you like it more sweet
  • 2 green apples
  • 2 cups of water for soaking
  • 1/2 tsp ground cardamom
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract or ground vanilla

Instructions

  1. Place the buckwheat and nuts in two separate jars, cover with water and leave for a night to soak. Rinse well and drain.
  2. Next you’ll need to blend the soaked buckwheat groats and soaked (overnight) nuts with the apples, grapefruit juice, vanilla and cardamom (and/or cinnamon). Blend until smooth and serve.
  3. This porridge can be kept for 3-4 days in the fridge. So when covered with a lid you can easily store this as an on the go breakfast.
  4. Topping:
  5. For the topping I used basically a few ingredients that I used before, such as the porridge itself, walnuts, buckwheat and a pinch of cardamom (or cinnamon). But of course there are so many great options to make this porridge look/taste even more delicious (if that is possible). You could top it with berries, cacao nibs, coconut flakes, goji berries, mulberries, chopped dates or a nut butter.
