Blackberry Buckwheat Porridge
I like to blend up a cool bowl of porridge for breakfast sometimes, instead of a smoothie. This new porridge recipe is taken from this month’s Eating Guide. It is chock full of delicious buckwheat and blackberries.
Before you might not have ever eaten buckwheat groats. They are similar to wheat oats or berries. You can eat buckwheat raw and add it to granola. You can also soak or cook the groats first. They’ll replace oatmeal in many recipes. I simply cover the buckwheat groats with water and allow them to soak overnight so they are ready to easily blend into a porridge first thing in the morning.
Buckwheat is a gluten-free seed that is a complete protein and packed with fiber. So it makes a filling breakfast that keeps you going all morning. This is high in manganese that helps to keep your blood sugar in check. Regular consumption of buckwheat has also been shown to help prevent heart disease.
Not only all blackberries are amazingly delicious, but they are some of the healthiest fruits you can eat. Blackberries contain a potent mix of antioxidants and pectin that fight off chronic diseases and cancer. That’s why I try to add berries to my diet daily and often include berry recipes such as this in my monthly Eating Guide Program.
This porridge is served at room temp, so you don’t need to cook anything, but you can also chill it in the fridge if you’d like it colder. I hope you enjoy it!
