Warm and creamy cereal for breakfast… is there anything more comforting on a chilly morning? I have been making this cereal recently, and it is so quick and easy! I still eat oatmeal occasionally, but it is nice to have an alternative!
I even took this a step further and made this pumpkin cereal, by just adding some pumpkin puree and spices!
Homemade Cream of Buckwheat Cereal
Print this recipe!
1 1/2 cups ground buckwheat – ground from groats
3 cups water
1 tbsp yogurt (or kefir, lemon juice, vinegar)
1/2 cup pumpkin puree (optional)
pumpkin spices – cinnamon, ginger, allspice, nutmeg, cloves, etc
dash of salt
The night before, combine the ground buckwheat with the water and yogurt. Stir well. Cover with a towel and let sit overnight.
In the morning, dump into a medium pot and cook over medium low heat, stirring constantly. Add the pumpkin and spices. Stir well, or it will stick to the bottom of the pan. It only takes about 5 minutes to cook.
Serve with your choice of toppings!
You could do this with any sort of grain – whole wheat flour, spelt, rye.. the choices are endless! I just love buckwheat, and love keeping it gluten and grain free!
This was my husbands bowl … some butter, milk, raisins, pumpkin seeds, and shredded coconut. Yum!
You may want to add some sort of sweetness … I added a little bit of honey (my favorite!) You could also had a chopped banana for natural sweetness!
This makes enough for several days worth of breakfasts for me. Enough to almost see me through my work week!
