Spiced Buckwheat Porridge

Spiced buckwheat porridge is an easy to make breakfast packed full of goodness. This comforting dish is best served warm and topped with fresh fruit and perhaps some nuts or seeds. Made with simple store cupboard ingredients, this naturally gluten-free breakfast can also be made ahead of time.
