Our Buckwheat Breakfast Bowl may leaving you asking buckwheat for breakfast?!
Sure. Why not?! This gluten-free superfood makes for a perfect start of your day.
Our Buckwheat Breakfast Bowl is packed with healthy carbs, antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins you need to start your day. Combining groats with healthy fats, fruit and honey offer so many health benefits. Groats are a chemical-free protein, that may help with digestion!
Try this pseudocereal to jumpstart your day.
Jazz this dish up as you see fit. This recipe is reminiscent of many of our oatmeal recipes. In this instance, we are combining the overnight oat technique (soaking overnight) with the cooking technique. It should come as no surprise that we recommend buckwheat honey to sweeten this potentially otherwise savory dish. Besides helping with sore throats, we find that this honey stands up well in recipes for bread-making and for making candied nuts.
It’s less chalky than overnight oats, and it’s a nice warm breakfast with rich flavor. It also cooks in half the time of our Power Porridge.
We think you will enjoy this filling, healthy, breakfast bowl made with buckwheat, nut milk, honey, chia and flax seeds, and fresh fruit. Serve it with eggs or turkey bacon for a complete breakfast that’ll keep you satisfied and running all morning long!
Have Fun with your Breakfast
Feeling adventurous? Mix up your ingredients with this breakfast bowl to have a fresh and filling start to your morning! Here are our suggestions:
- Toast the groats in a saucepan for a few minutes to bring out the rich flavor (on low heat for a few minutes, constantly stirring to avoid catching)
- Use coconut milk or any nut milk of your choice
- Skip the fruit and add chopped sun-dried tomatoes, sautéed kale and a poached egg for a savory take on this breakfast dish
We recommend you serve this hot right after it is cooked with toppings of your choice!
