This is so good! I only used a couple of dates and served with sliced apple and raisins - very tasty. This will be a great breakfast in the colder months. Thanks!

This is yummy! Filling too... I made it with dried dates and it was nice, then got some fresh ones in and it was amazing! I also put some raisins in one morning and it reminded me of cake mix! I need to get some more buckwheat so I can have it every day for a while!

Hi iheartveggies,
I asked John Bagnulo, Phd. in nutrition at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, if the buckwheat groats had to be sprouted, or if they could just be soaked over night. He told me two things: buckwheat is more like a legume, and soaking over night is fine. You do want to rinse them before you process them to wash away the unwelcome enzyme prohibit er. Hope that helps.

I love buckwheat porridge, I often add cacao powder too. It makes a good pudding as well when you fancy something a bit like a steamed sponge pudding. Mmm I wonder if such a pudding exists, might have to start inventing!

I have some buckwheat groats sitting in my pantry but I'm not sure how to sprout them. If I sprout them overnight, they will only be rinsed once or twice. Is that enough?
