WINTER WARMER… BUCKWHEAT PORRIDGE

The winter calls for breakfasts that warm and ground us and porridge is always great for comfort. Buckwheat is a beautiful option to vary from an oat porridge for breaky and really leaves you satisfied and well energised for HOURS. You may see I turn to buckwheat as a source of energy often, I love it as much as I love life itself. Buckwheat has an incredible texture, flavour and versatility in both sweet and savoury meals. Best of all it’s a fruit seed (from the rhubarb family), totally unrelated to wheat, making it gluten free.

WINTER WARMER… BUCKWHEAT PORRIDGE

GF: SF: DF: VG

Serves 2

1 cup dry buckwheat (raw or roasted), rinsed
2 cups milk of choice (rice or almond is delicious)
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 teaspoons vanilla
6-8 organic dried apricots, sliced
1 pear, diced
2 teaspoons BIOGLAN Cacao Choc or Goji Strawberry Breakfast Booster
pinch BIOGLAN Maca Powder

Place buckwheat, milk, cinnamon, vanilla and apricots in a small saucepan and stir together.
Over a low to medium heat bring the covered saucepan to the boil, then remove heat, stir well and reduce heat to a simmer.
Cook for a further 10-12 minutes or until buckwheat is al dente and most of the milk is absorbed.
The aim is to have a porridge resembling a risotto consistency. We don’t want all the liquid absorbed as we bring it off the heat as it continues to soak into the buckwheat once it is off the stove.
Top with diced pear and BIOGLAN Breakfast Booster of choice and a sprinkle of maca.
