Buckwheat Apple Porridge

Buckwheat Apple Porridge - close up

 

The warm flavours of apples and cinnamon bring this porridge to life while the buckwheat groats, nuts and pumpkin seeds help it stick to your ribs for hours.

Ingredients

Scale

½ cup buckwheat groats

1 cup water

1 apple – chopped, skin on

½ teaspoon cinnamon

1 Tablespoon chopped walnuts (best if soaked overnight, drained and then used – much more digestible)

1 teaspoon maple syrup or honey

2 teaspoons pumpkin seeds

Instructions

  1. Rinse the buckwheat under cold running water and place it in a small saucepan with the water, apple, cinnamon and pre-soaked (if possible) walnuts.
  2. Bring to a boil then lower the heat and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes stirring frequently to prevent sticking. When done, the groats will be soft and the mixture will have a porridge consistency. Transfer to a serving bowl.
  3. Enjoy topped with maple syrup or honey (you don’t need much as the apples make it sweet) and pumpkin seeds. 

Notes

An important note is once you open a package, try to use it up in the first week or store the leftover in the freezer to avoid it going rancid.
