My latest addiction: raw buckwheat porridge! THE cold summer porridge. Porridge? Cold? Believe me – it is absolutely delicious. On cold days I love a hot oat porridge for breakfast but in the summer this one is just perfect. Get yourself a big pack of buckwheat groats! Raw buckwheat porridge its healthy, filling and easy to make.
It has been very quiet here lately as the weather has been so good and also because I started to become crazy about triathlon. I finished my first triathlon beginning of July and it was so much fun. I was so proud passing that finish line. I already signed up for the next one in Cologne in September. Training all three disciplines is never boring, it keeps me fit and strong and one of the most important things: I can eat a lot!
In a bowl, pour two cups of buckwheat groats with about double the amount of water. Soak for at least there hours – better: overnight. After soaking, rinse well in a strainer. Place buckwheat groats in a blender. Add milk and maple syrup and blend for a couple of minutes until smooth. I love to refine my raw buckwheat porridge with a tablespoon of nut butter (almond butter or peanut butter) and a little bit of vanilla extract. Ideas for toppings: Fresh or dried fruit, nuts, shredded coconut, chia seeds, hemp seeds…
