My sons gobbled up this display when they returned home from school (it wasn’t a tough sell!).
- 1 cup buckwheat groats (Kasha)
- 2 heaping Tbsp ground flaxseed (flax meal)
- About 2 Tbsp raw pepitas
- 1 large ripe seasonal pear, skin on and chopped into bite size pieces
- Handful pomegranate seeds
- 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
- Drizzle of honey
Don’t be intimidated by seeds/ancient grains. They behave much like oatmeal or other more familiar foods and are as easy to cook as rice. You can find them at health food stores, bulk food stores and many regular grocery stores now carry them as well (Bob’s Red Mill is a common North American brand).
Once the groats are cooked (they will have softened and puffed up in size and most of the water will have been used up), remove pot from heat and add ground flaxseed to the groats/pear, mixing to combine.
Divide warm cereal between two bowls and add milk or milk alternative. Drizzle each bowl of cereal with a little honey or pure maple syrup, as you wish. Sprinkle the cereal with pepitas, pom seeds and a dollop of yogurt, as desired.
Cheers to your health and happiness!
