Sweet spiced apple kasha makes a fabulous wholesome breakfast. Pan toast your own buckwheat groats for the best cereal. Blueberries, sliced almonds, nut milk and maple syrup complete the meal. Dairy-free, gluten-free, wholefood and sugar-free.
Heat a dry skillet over medium setting. Toast raw buckwheat groats about 5 minutes while stirring constantly. When one or two begin crackling and aroma is released they are ready. Take care not to over toast. You can chew up a groat to test it. It should have a nice dry crunch without tasting bitter or burnt.
Chop apple and place in a saucepan with water, spices and salt.
Bring spiced water to a boil and stir in toasted buckwheat groats. Lower heat, cover pan and cook 15 minutes or until kasha is plump with most the water absorbed.
Divide cereal between 2 bowls. Top with fresh blueberries, sliced almonds, nut milk and maple syrup as desired.
