I love having oatmeal for breakfast, but after seeing variations of this recipe online I thought some morning grain experiments would be fun. I was surprised by how much I like this. The texture reminds me of greek yogurt. To be fair, I haven’t had dairy-based yogurt in years, but that silky, full mouthfeel was familiar. I topped mine with raspberries, figs and chia seeds, but play around to suit your own tastes. Enjoy! -Amanda
Yields: 2 servings
1 cup raw buckwheat groats, soaked overnight
1/2 cup cashews, soaked overnight and drained
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1/4 tsp. cardamom
1/4 tsp. salt
fresh fruit (optional)
chia seeds (optional)
1. Drain and rinse the buckwheat groats. You may notice some slimy residue from the soaking. That is perfectly normal- it will drain away.
2. Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until desired consistency is reached (I like mine silky smooth).
3. Top with fruit and chia seeds, if desired.
