Weekend Recipe - Coconut Buckwheat Porridge

This recipe is super easy (as I always like) and it is also courtesy of the incredible Meghan Telpner whom I have a girl crush on. This chic is amazeballs in the kitchen and seems to know everything and anything, whilst maintaining an all-round healthy approach to eating and food. Totally my kind of chic. So here is a super delish recipe that will start your day with a bang! but can just as easily be had for lunch or a hearty snack.


Ingredients (Serves 1-2)
  • scant 1/4 cup toasted buckwheat, ground (or raw-activated-and-dried buckwheat)
  • 1/2 cup + 2 Tbs coconut milk
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1 Tbs raw honey
  • 1 Tbs shredded coconut
  • 2 Tbs currants
  • 2 Tbs chopped pecans
  • drizzle of coconut syrup
Bring the coconut milk, water, vanilla and honey to a boil in a small pot. While the liquid is heating up, grind buckwheat in a coffee grinder until fine.
Add the buckwheat to the pot, stir well and turn the heat down to a low simmer. Cover and cook for 10 minutes, checking every few minutes to see if the porridge needs more liquid (we added a few extra tablespoons).
Scoop into a bowl and add shredded coconut, currants, pecans and coconut syrup. Enjoy!

Something super coolio about Buckwheat that you may not know is that it is used as both a food and a healing herb. Some sweet health benefits include:
  • Adjusts metabolism, fat and the lipo-soluble vitamins due to the presence of inositol.
  • Helps the liver in processing hormones, medicines, and glucoses, with a protective hepatic effect.
  • The concentration of magnesium offers a relaxing effect over blood vessels, improving circulation and decreasing blood pressure.

So this weekend why not try this out and sit down to enjoy a lazy brekkie with a loved one.
