At first glance, you might think this is going to be a tricky recipe, but in reality it’s quite easy – especially when it comes to making the buckwheat porridge. You can get most of this ready the night before, which is a bonus, particularly if you’re rushing to work or doing the school run.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
170g buckwheat groats
480ml water
120ml almond milk, or any other plant-based milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon lime juice

For the papaya topping

Quantity Ingredient
1 large papaya
1 lime, zested
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 tablespoons raw honey
2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds

Method

  1. Soak the buckwheat groats in the 480ml water for at least 1 hour or overnight. After soaking, strain and rinse well. Put the soaked groats, almond milk, vanilla extract and lime juice in a blender or food processor and blitz well.
  2. To make the topping, peel the papaya, then cut it into chunks and place in a large jar or container. Add the remaining ingredients and mash together with a large spoon – this will release the juices from the papaya, but be sure to leave a few good chunks. Cover your jar or container with an airtight lid and place in the fridge to marinate if you have time. (Again, a great one to get ready the night before.)
  3. Once marinated and ready to go, put your porridge in a bowl and spoon the papaya topping all over.

Note

  • In addition to being high in vitamins A and C, papaya contains papain, a digestive enzyme that is used to treat digestive disorders. It is also excellent for skin conditions, such as acne.
