Make sure you prepare for your breakfast the night before by soaking the groats in water. It will make them soft and blend better in a porridge. If you don’t let it sit in water for at least 8 hours, you will get a grittier result.
I have used vanilla and cinnamon with honey for my porridge to give it a sweet flavor, topped with coconut, muesli and fresh berries. You can choose anything you like. This recipe is perfect for 2 people, but you can double the ingredients to feed a bigger group of people.
Some of you might think that raw buckwheat doesn’t sound very tasty, and I understand, why, but when you try it once, you will change your mind.
