What is Buckwheat?
Buckwheat is not at all related to wheat (it’s gluten-free!). Neither is it a grain or a cereal!! So what is Buckwheat? It’s a seed of a flowering plant!! Ha!! It’s called a pseudo-cereal! And it’s all kinds of good for you, plus it’s high in protein!
How to make Buckwheat porridge:
Boil water in a medium saucepan. Then whisk in buckwheat cereal, cinnamon, and salt.
Cover and cook for about 8 minutes or until all the water is absorbed. Then remove from heat and add peanut butter and coconut cream.
Now that your porridge is ready, serve and garnish with dried cranberries, pecans, hempseed, and of course, Maple Syrup!!
If you are looking for a fabulous way to include buckwheat into your diet, or just looking for a healthy breakfast that will fuel your day, I encourage you to try this recipe! I loved it, and I can’t wait to keep tasting my way through Ginny’s cookbook!
