toasted buckwheat porridge

i find buckwheat tasty. you can use buckwheat flour in pancakes, by adding it to granola bars, you can even sprout it and eat the greens in your salad.

it’s a gluten-free grain that has been associated with reducing cholesterol, improving circulation, and might even be able to treat type II diabetes.

this is a simple way to cook it up as a hardy breakfast, especially great on those cold foggy mornings.

  1. 1in a large frying pan or skillet toast the buckwheat dry over high heat. after about 5 minutes over heat, with continuously stirring, they should start to turn toasty brown. make sure you get them before they start to burn. (note: if you are using toasted buckwheat you can skip this step.)
  2. 2add the salt to the water and bring to a boil.
  3. 3add the toasted buckwheat and boil on high, while stirring occasionally. cook until all the water has boiled off, which takes about 10 minutes.
  4. 4while still over heat add the earth balance and stir completely in. serve warm.
