Even though it’s fall and most people start cozying up, it’s so sunny here that I was actually craving a cold, raw breakfast. Enter my beloved raw buckwheat porridge. I never knew that you can actually eat raw buckwheat and I was majorly skeptical when I read about it online. I thought this would give me major stomach cramps and I was afraid to try it for a long time. Well. At some point I did give it a try and I have never looked back. I have not eaten a breakfast that is more gentle on the stomach, satisfying and good-for-you than this porridge. If you are skeptical towards raw food like I am, this is the perfect dish to get over this skepticism and realize that raw foods don’t have to be difficult to digest and are incredibly tasty. If you want it to be slightly warm after all, simply rinse the buckwheat in warm water, and/or use warm milk to blend the porridge.
