You are looking for a delicious and vegan buckwheat breakfast porridge recipe? After hearing so many good things about Buckwheat and the buckwheat sprout muesli I would like to show you today another possible use for buckwheat sprouts. A great new option for breakfast is vegan buckwheat breakfast porridge. Due to the nutrient density of buckwheat, it is an absolute basic food for me in its sprouted form that I eat almost daily. So that it is not boring, I have already tried some recipes with buckwheat. Today I would like to introduce you to my buckwheat breakfast porridge.
Vegan buckwheat breakfast porridge recipe base
Vegan breakfast porridge sounds quite complicated at first. However, the vegan buckwheat breakfast porridge recipe is quite simple.
For the buckwheat breakfast porridge recipe you need only a few ingredients. The basic recipe consists of only three ingredients:
- 200 grams of germinated buckwheat sprouts -. germinable buckwheat you get here plastic-free in organic quality*
- 5 tablespoons flaxseed, soaked overnight -. you get here plastic-free in organic quality*
- 50-100 ml milk alternative of your choice, depending on the desired consistency -. how you can make your own vegetable milk I show you in this post.
You can find detailed instructions for sprouting buckwheat in my contribution to the buckwheat sprout muesli.
Put all the ingredients in a blender and puree them. It's best to start with a little less vegetable milk and add a little more later if you like the buckwheat breakfast porridge more liquid. However, if it's already too runny for you, you can add some chia seeds again for a slightly thicker consistency. If you don't have any vegetable milk at home, you can also prepare the breakfast porridge with a little water. To mix I can recommend this blender*. The blender from Philips has a glass container with a capacity of 2 liters and is finished with very little plastic.
Nutritional values of buckwheat porridge
Buckwheat sprouts contain much Vitamin B1, B3 and B6, as well as the minerals Magnesium, Iron and Zinc. The healthy grain is an excellent source of Carbohydrates and Protein and contains only a moderate amount Fat.
Variations of the buckwheat breakfast porridge recipe
The buckwheat breakfast porridge base recipe remains the same and is refined by various spices. Especially well suited for this:
- Cinnamon - Organic Ceylon Cinnamon in plastic free packaging you can get here*
- Cocoa nibs - you get here plastic-free in organic quality, Fairtrade and bulk packaging*
- Coconut flakes - you get here plastic-free in organic quality*
- Agave syrup - you get here in organic quality and in a reusable ironing jar*
- Vanilla - Vanilla extract, vegan, organic and fairtrade you get here*
It's best to simply use spices according to your taste. I like the combination of cocoa nibs, coconut flakes and cinnamon particularly well, because the spices complement each other. I use about 2 tablespoons of cacao nibs, 2 tablespoons of coconut flakes and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. If you like, you can add some fruit to the buckwheat breakfast porridge, although this is not an optimal combination for digestion.
Alternatively, you can also use chia seeds (you get online and plastic free here*) instead of flax seeds, because they have a similar composition and act similarly in the recipe. Or you can simply use chia seeds as a topping for your breakfast porridge.
Vegan buckwheat breakfast porridge?
With the vegan buckwheat breakfast porridge recipe you can bring some variety into your breakfast and at the same time fully enjoy the health benefits of sprouted buckwheat. Due to its composition and variability, the dish is also perfect for fasting and can be eaten several times a day. In the morning you can have the buckwheat breakfast porridge sweetly flavored with cinnamon and a few coconut flakes and at lunchtime hearty with pepper, a little salt and fresh or dried herbs depending on the season.
I especially like this recipe because it is so absolutely simple and really requires very little. I always have buckwheat, flaxseed, chia seeds and spices at home and start a new sprouting process with buckwheat every day. So I can very quickly make the buckwheat breakfast porridge and start the day healthy.
