Have you determined yet that i LOVE buckwheat!? What is not to love about this nourishing fruit seed super food? Buckwheat is gluten free, full of protein and fiber, it is low fat and contains a high source of amino acids, vitamins and minerals. I love to wake up to this hearty bowl of goodness, the warm spices and nutty flavor of the buckwheat really compliment each other. Not to mention you already have a serving of vegetables in for the day! This recipe is really easy to make the day before and bring to work, just re-heat.
Ingredients
  • ¼ cup carrot - grated
  • ¼ cup green apple - grated or diced (i enjoy chunks of apple for texture)
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp ginger - fresh grated or powder
  • pinch salt
  • ¼ cup raw non-roasted buckwheat groats (i prefer non-roasted, they can be a bit bitter)
  • 1.5 cup water/milk of choice (i use unsweetened vanilla cashew milk)
  • 2 tbsp pure pumpkin puree
  • 1 tbsp golden raisins
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (i use E.D. Smith no sugar added Maple Syrup)
  • Toppings of choice: Greek yogurt, apples, carrots, raisins,walnuts, pecans, coconut
Instructions
  1. Add carrots, apple, vanilla and spices to small pot over medium heat.
  2. Allow to cook for approximately 5 minutes, spices will get fragrant and carrots/apples will begin to soften.
  3. Add in raw buckwheat groats, water/milk, pumpkin, raisins and sweetener of your choice.
  4. Mix well and bring to a boil.
  5. Once boiling, turn down to low heat and cover with a lid.
  6. Stir every 5 minutes or so to prevent buckwheat from sticking to bottom.
  7. Cook for approximately 15-20 minutes depending on how chewy you like your buckwheat ( I prefer mine on the slightly chewy side).
  8. Pour into bowl and add toppings of your choice, enjoy!
