This is a very basic gluten-free and dairy-free porridge substitute, the buckwheat grouts will need to be soaked, and that is the majority of the prep time - set it aside the night before, and then 20 minutes in the morning, you have a thick, warm porridge for these cooler mornings!

This recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free and nut-free; it is also safe for those who follow a vegan diet.

 2 cups Buckwheat Grouts
 3 cups Water
 2 cups DF Milk
 0.25 cup Ground Linseed
 1 cup Mixed berries
 2 tsp Brown Sugar

1

The night before - pop the two cups of buckwheat grouts into a bowl with 3 cups of water, and leave to soak overnight - I always cover it with a clean tea towel, just to make sure no insects decide to commit suicide overnight (especially flies *shudder*)... and leave on the bench.

2

The next morning, rinse the grouts out and pour fresh water over them a few times until it runs reasonably clear.

3

Pop the grouts, milk, ground linseed, *berries and **sugar into a saucepan, and cook on medium heat - stirring regularly, until the mixture begins to resemble a porridge-like thickness.

Pour into 4 bowls, and top with your choice of toppings - I squiggled a little bit of golden syrup on the kids but left ours plain. DF and GF yoghurt, fresh fruit, milk - all of these will work well, basically anything that you would top porridge with!

*Berries can be replaced with any fruit you desire - grated apple and cinnamon is a great combo, tinned fruit also works well (although I would add the tinned fruit in afterwards, rather than cook it with the grouts), fresh summer fruit, chopped banana...

**Sugar is optional - you can leave it out altogether, or replace it with honey, maple syrup, golden syrup - whatever you have on hand.
