Buckwheat carrot porridge with - lots of things

Buckwheat carrot porridge with - lots of things

Ever heard of brinner? That’s a word for “Breakfast for dinner”. Genius if you ask me as breakfast is a favourite and when making a hearty breakky if works for any time of the day! I know this blog is starting to look like an all porridge feed but as I really wanted to share this one, with soaked buckwheat groats and fresh ginger in it, I figured there just have to be another porridge recipe here! So, enjoy - my latest porridge craving coming up below!

Buckwheat carrot porridge with - lots of things

Serves 2

Ingredients

1 dl / 0.4 cups rolled oats

1 1/2 dl / 0.6 cups whole buckwheat groats, soaked over night or for at least 8 hours + preferably also sprouted *

3 dl / 1.2 cups water

2 dl / 0.8 cups unsweetened plant mylk of your choice

2 carrots, peel still on and finely grated

1 Tbsp fresh ginger, grated

1 tsp ground turmeric

a pinch of salt, preferably unrefined

Topping suggestions (pretty much everything works here)

kale powder (yes you read it, dried kale mixed in to a lovely powder!)

sweet cocktail tomatoes

tahini

shredded coconut

dried organic fruits and berries (such as goji berries, mulberries, apricots)

walnuts

How to

Rinse the buckwheat thoroughly. Bring oats, water, mylk, carrot, ginger and spices to a boil, let simmer for 2 minutes. Add the buckwheat and simmer for another minute. Stir every now and then to get a creamy porridge. Maybe add a bit more water/mylk to get you desired consistency. Salt to taste. Let the porridge cool slightly then top with your favourites!

* How to soak whole buckwheat groats: Put the groats in a bowl and fill with the double amount of water. Add 1 Tbsp for every 5 dl / 2 cups (this helps the soaking process). Let soak over night or for at least 8 hours. Rinse well and drain. Now your buckwheat are ready to be eating - but if you have time you can also sprout them! If so put them in a fine mesh strainer (or in a sprouting jar) and let sprout for at least 24 h, rinse with water 2 times daily until your groats grow a teensy little tail! Store, well drained, in a jar in your fridge.
