From Delicious Living. This is very versatile. I subbed chopped zucchini for the raisins and it turned out great.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. If using quinoa, rinse with the other grains.
  2. Bring water to a boil in a small pot.
  3. Add rinsed buckwheat and millet, plus oats (or quinoa), apple, almonds, raisins or dates, cinnamon, cardamom, and salt. Stir.
  4. When simmering, cover and reduce heat to low.
  5. Cook 15 minutes, then turn off heat and let the pot sit, covered, for another 5 minutes.
  6. Stir in flaxseed and serve, topped with milk or yogurt, if desired.

This is a great recipe. I soak the quinoa in the water for fifteen minutes otherwise it does not get fully cooked. It keeps well in the refrigerator so I make a double or triple batch.

Delicious! I didn't have buckwheat groats, so used a mix of six different rolled grains, oats, and millet. Love the apple and raisins and used walnuts. Thanks for a yummy and healthy breakfast! Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
