  1. Place cream of buckwheat and 1.5 cups of water in a pot. Stir and cover. Leave on the counter for 8 hours or overnight.

  2. In the morning, add remaining water to the pot, add the salt and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cook until smooth and desired thickness, about 5 minutes.

  3. Serve immediately with a whole sweetener or fruit and healthy fat of choice such as butter, ghee or coconut oil.

  4. Refrigerate leftovers.

Recipe Notes

Substitute dairy milk, store bought or homemade coconut milk or a healthy milk substitute for the filtered water if desired for a creamier porridge. Half water and half milk works well too.
