I’ve been reading a lot of Game of Thrones lately. It’s a little hard to read about all the wonderful food they’re eating! There’s one passage where they talk about the porridge. So, if you read/watch Game of Thrones, you can think of that while eating this : )
The ingredients are pretty forgiving. You can add whatever spices you like. If you don’t have hemp seeds, just add more of the oat bran/buckwheat groats, etc.
Savory Breakfast Porridge
1/4 cup oat bran
1/4 cup buckwheat groats
1/4 cup hemp seeds
1.5 tbsp nutritional yeast (make sure you’ve tested this already and have no reactions)
1 1/4 cup water
salt & pepper to taste
2 tsp italian seasoning (or you can use individual herbs. Sage/basil/tarragon/rosemary/etc)
1 tsp garlic powder or 1-3 cloves
cayenne pepper to taste
1/2 tsp turmeric
1) Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan. Simmer over very low heat 25-30 minutes, or until buckwheat groats are tender. If using roasted buckwheat groats, cooking time will be closer to 15-20 minutes. Stir frequently!
* For mock polenta cakes, follow the exact same recipe. After cooking in the saucepan, transfer to a small casserole dish. Chill in a refrigerator. Cut into squares. You have an instant food that you could reheat by microwaving/roasting/frying. For more ideas, look up polenta recipes online, simply substituting the above “grain” ingredients in place of corn.
* For a filling soup, thin this out with some water/veggie stock. Add spinach and/or chopped kale.

I’m a recent savory porridge convert!
I’ve just been eating plain old oat bran, but instead of using water I use chicken broth (homemade of course) – mmm surprisingly tasty!
This post has inspired me to become more adventurous with seasonings 🙂October 17, 2013 at 1:35 pm #111532

This was really great, thank you so much for sharing! It reminded me a lot like chicken noodle soup (just add more water/broth). I ran out of hemp seeds for round two, so I used millet, which was not bad except that I should have soaked it for a while. YUM!
