This no-cook porridge is ideal for those busy mornings where you need a fast pick-me-up meal. All you have to do is soak raw buckwheat groats the night before and then blitz them with a splash of almond milk the next day.

We love buckwheat for its earthy, nutty, and almost caramel-like flavour. But what's even greater about this gluten-free pseudocereal is its beneficial effect on blood sugar levels. These whole-grain groats are packed with fibres, which slow down the digestion of sugars, thus regulating the stream of energy released after a meal. Moreover, buckwheat is a vegan source of complete proteins, meaning it provides all the nine essential amino acids your body needs to build proteins.
Pairing buckwheat with nut butter and flaxseeds will give you a blast of fibres and plant-based proteins. One serving of this porridge provides a whopping 23% of your RDI for proteins and 36% RDI for fibres. Flaxseeds are also an excellent source of essential omega-3 fatty acids, with a single tablespoon covering all you need in a day.
If you don't have the time to cook porridge in the morning or if you never thought of eating buckwheat raw, then this fast porridge recipe will be a brand-new, exciting way of preparing breakfast. Besides, soaking and draining the groats before consuming them also make them easier to digest . It's a win-win!
Delicious and easy-to-make, this overnight porridge is also a fantastic meal prepping idea as you can store it in the fridge for a few days and have a wholesome breakfast always at hand.
