1 cup raw buckwheat groats
1 cup unsweetened plant-based milk
¼ teaspoon sea salt



Add groats to a bowl and cover with water. Soak for 30 minutes to one hour, then strain and rinse well.


Place groats in a large saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring often until it begins to brown and smell nutty, about two to three minutes.


Place in ½ cup of water, one cup plant-based milk, and sea salt and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for eight to 10 minutes or until all liquid has been absorbed.
