Antioxidant Buckwheat Porridge Recipe

Ingredients

  1. For the porridge:
  • 170 grams buckwheat groats
  • 480ml water
  • 120ml almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  1. For the papaya topping:
  • 1 large papaya
  • zest of 1 lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey
  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds

Directions

Porridge:

  1. Soak the buckwheat groats in the 480ml water for at least 1 hour or overnight. After soaking, strain, and rinse well.
  2. Put the soaked groats in a pot, add your almond milk and cook until soft. When cooked to your liking, add vanilla extract and lime juice and stir well.

Topping:

  1. Peel the papaya, then cut it into chunks and place in a large jar or container, add the remaining ingredients, and mash together (be sure to leave a few chunks in there) with a large spoon to release the juices and blend the flavours.
  2. Cover your jar or container with an airtight lid and place in the fridge to marinate overnight.
  3. Plate the groats in two bowls, top with your papaya relish, and enjoy.
