Warm Buckwheat Porridge

Have you ever tried buckwheat for breakfast? Buckwheat is a pseudocereal grain like quinoa and amaranth, and is often easier to digest for people with sensitivities to gluten and grains. It’s highly nutritious, and has a bit of a mild, nutty flavor. It makes a nice alternative to oatmeal, and is yummy with warm milk, berries, compote, and a healthy sprinkling of nuts and seeds.
