(for 2 servings):
- 1/2 cup buckwheat groats (I like roasted buckwheat, or kasha)
- 2 cups water
- pinch of salt
- 3 green cardamom pods
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon or a cinnamon stick
- 1 pear
- 2 strawberries or a couple of blueberries
- ghee + maple sirup
Crush the cardamom pods slightly. Add water, salt, cardamom and cinnamon to a saucepan. Bring to a boil.
Rinse buckwheat and add to the boiling water.
Reduce the heat to low, cover with a lid and cook for 7 mn.
Add cut up pear and continue to cook, covered, until liquid is absorbed (usually another 5 mn or so).
Serve, top with berries, add a conservative amount of ghee and maple sirup (no more than 1 teaspoon each).
