Raw Buckwheat Porridge

February 17, 2013

As promised, I’ve been experimenting with other forms of buckwheat! Recently, I made this raw soaked porridge very similar to the dough boy smoothies I make with oats, milk and yogurt.

The Little Rascal

March 31, 2011

I’ve waited many moons to make one of Ashley’s Buckwheat Bakes!! I finally found some raw buckwheat (you need the raw version to turn to flour, not the roasted kasha kind I’ve used on salads and in granola). So as you recall, yesterday I ground it into flour in my Vita-mix (you can also make […]
