Raw Buckwheat Porridge for Autumn

Each time I do the cleanse I become aware of how much chomping I do during this time. Chomping carrots, nuts, kale, apples… I feel like a horse. Crunch crunch crunch.

I wanted to eat something creamy and soft for breakfast, and give my teeth time to wake up. The recipe below is one of my favorite porridges in the world. It’s SO easy and tastes surprisingly complex. And the main ingredient is buckwheat, which is one of my favorite staples. Buckwheat (kasha) is related to rhubarb and an incredibly healthy gluten-free grain. It’s high in protein, low in sugar, and really really good for your heart. This recipe was adapted from Green Kitchen Stories, one of my favorite recipe blogs.
