Change up your breakfast routine with this delicious, raw buckwheat groats porridge. It’s a super quick recipe made by soaking buckwheat groats and almonds overnight, and finishing in a food processor with strawberries, tahini, and cinnamon. 


  • 1 cup (180 g) raw buckwheat groats
  • ¼ cup (40 g) raw almonds (see note 1)
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) tahini (see note 2)
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon (see note 3)
  • 2 cups (270 g) chopped, stemmed strawberries (see note 4)
  • Toppings:
  • Fresh fruit, diced
  • Shredded coconut
  • Maple syrup
  • Agave nectar


  1. Place the buckwheat groats and almonds into a medium bowl, and add cold water to cover them by about 4 inches (10 cm). Soak on a kitchen counter, partially covered with a lid or plate, for 8 hours, or overnight.
  2. Rinse the soaked groats and almonds under cold running water, until the water runs out clear. Drain and place them into a food processor bowl fitted with an S-blade. (You can also use a high-speed blender).
  3. Add the tahini, cinnamon, and strawberries, and process until the mixture resembles a coarse paste. (Add a tablespoon or two water if the consistency of the porridge is too thick).
  4. Sweeten the porridge if you like and top with your favorite topping. 
  5. The buckwheat porridge will last, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. 


  • note 1 – sub almonds with other raw nuts: walnuts, cashews, hazelnuts, pistachios, Brazil nuts, pecans, or macadamias 
  • note 2 – sub tahini with almond or peanut butter
  • note 3 – sub cinnamon with dried ginger, ground cardamom or ground allspice
