Recently I got tired of my breakfast routine, which I had for at least 6 months, if not a year. I actually can’t remember when I last had something else for breakfast than fresh fruit with yogurt and granola.
While this buckwheat banana porridge will probably not last several months on my breakfast table, it is surely a good one to have in the coldish winter and early spring months. My idea was to create a gluten-free and vegan breakfast porridge. Despite its name, buckwheat does not belong to the wheat group and is gluten free. It has quite a strong and distinctive taste, very much on the nutty and earthy side.
In a small pot, combine buckwheat grains, soy milk and cinnamon. Cover with a lid, bring to a boil, then let simmer on low heat until liquid has been absorbed and buckwheat is soft and chewy, about 10 minutes.
In a serving bowl, stir in the mashed banana into the cooked buckwheat. Sprinkle with chopped almonds. Serve immediately.
