Creamy Chai Buckwheat Porridge with Pear

Food & Recipes door thijs

Just like a lot of Fit Girls out there, I love my warm or overnight oatmeal bowls in the morning. Not into oatmeal? Check out Fit Girl Laura’s post and try it. I got hooked on oatmeal two years ago and eat it about 5 times a week… But a girl needs to experiment – so I found myself prepping buckwheat porridge.

It’s just like oatmeal in my opinion: on itself not really tasty. It’s all about the right ingredients and combination of flavours. With fall coming, I decided to make a nice bowl with autumn flavours. I got inspired by chai tea & warm pear sauce, started experimenting and made this amazing recipe:

Creamy overnight Chai flavoured buckwheat porridge, with coconut milk and warm cinnamon pear sauce. And yes, it’s as delicous as it sounds. And much easier to prep than you think. Here’s how:

What do you need
100 ml coconut milk
50 ml water
1 tbs chai herbs
3 tbs raisins
5 tbs buckwheat
1 banana (mashed)
2 ts cinnamon powder
1 pear (cut into pieces)
1 tbs lemon juice

Put the coconut milk, water, buckwheat, banana, raisins, chai herbs and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder in a big jar and shake well. Put it in the fridge overnight. The next morning, put your buckwheat porridge in a bowl and make the sauce: put the pear, lemon juice and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder in a small pot and heat up (or microwave it for 2 minutes). Mash it into a big, chunky sauce. Pour the sauce over your buckwheat.
That’s it. Easy does it. Enjoy!

If you prefer your breakfast warm, just prepare the buckwheat porridge in a small pot in stead of overnight, with the same ingredients. Add some red fruit or superfoods if you’d like!
