Buckwheat porridge with figs – a gluten free porridge

Believe it or not, but buckwheat is actually related to rhubarbs! Gluten intolerant people use it as a good gluten free alternative and raw food eaters like it because it contains all eight important amino acids.
The porridge is quite low in protein, so make sure you add something rich in protein on the side, for example an egg.
Cooking time: 15 minutes, quicker if you soak the grains the night before.

Pot barley porridge – a real Scandinavian Christmas treat

barley porridgePot barley is the unrefined, whole grain of barley, as opposed to pearl barley, where the barley’s bran covering has been removed. Barley is used in traditional Scandinavian meat dishes as filler in sausages and haggis. Barley can be boiled and used instead of rice. Pot barley was used for Christmas porridge before the rice pudding was introduced. The pot barley porridge gives a real Christmas feeling with the cinnamon and soft warmth.
The porridge is best eaten the same day it’s cooked, but it will keep in the fridge for a day or two.

Try for a few days and your belly will thank you. You can also use the mix on yogurt and in bread you’re baking.
