If a bowl of oatmeal is your go-to breakfast, you’ll enjoy this warm porridge made from buckwheat—a gluten-free, grain-like seed that has a nutty flavor and a soft, chewy texture when cooked. Like oatmeal, buckwheat is high in fiber and protein, and low in fat and cholesterol. In this recipe, it’s simmered in coconut water, then topped with coconut, cranberry and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Good morning to you!
