A Buckwheat Kind of Day
Get your morning groove on with a bowl of buckwheat. A gluten-free alternative that is high in protien and fast to cook is my kind of grain. But wait, don't do too many things at once while buckwheat is cooking or you will end up with mushwheat!
Toast It - 1 TBS. Olive oil or butter + 1 cup buckwheat groats
Boil It - Add buckwheat to 2 cups of boiling water
Simmer It - Turn down the heat, cover, and simmer for 12-15 minutes
Leave It - Allow the grains to set covered for at least 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
Make a large serving buckwheat on Sunday. For a quick breakfast during the busy work week, scoop 1/3 cup of buckwheat into a bowl and top it with raspberry Noosa yogut and Bare Naked granola.
