Anwesha Recipes: Apple Cinnamon Buckwheat Porridge

Great for cold winter mornings, this simple porridge delivers on flavor and nutrition.


2 cups water

1/2 cup Buckwheat Groats

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon cardamom

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 small apple cut into cubes

handful of crushed walnuts

pinch of sea salt


  1. Bring water to a slow boil. Add the buckwheat groats and a pinch of sea salt. Stir a few times to ensure the porridge doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan. 
  2. Let simmer for 5 minutes, then add cinnamon, cardamon, vanilla and apple cubes. Stir and let simmer for another 5-10 minutes, or until most of the moisture is gone. At this point, give the porridge a taste test. If the texture is to your liking, add the crushed walnuts and enjoy. If the texture is too crunchy, add 1/2 cup -1 cup more water and continue to simmer for another 5-10 minutes. 

Delicious additions – a splash of plant milk, extra cinnamon, a teaspoon maple syrup, a pinch of coconut sugar, or for some added protein – a 1-2 tablespoons of almond or peanut butter.
