Dear Cancer Project supporter,

This recipe is a good way to start your day. It contains a high amount of vitamin C from the orange juice and fiber from the buckwheat. If you prefer less sugar, subtract quantity to your taste.



Makes 4 to 6 servings

2 cups orange juice (preferably “not from concentrate”)
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup cream of buckwheat cereal
1/4-1/3 cup sweetener, to taste (sugar, cane syrup, etc.)
fresh fruit or berries (optional)

In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine juice, water, and cream of buckwheat. Cook covered over low heat, stirring occasionally, for approximately 20 minutes or until buckwheat granules are tender and translucent and have absorbed most of the liquid. Remove from heat and gradually stir in sweetener to taste (about 1/4 to 1/3 cup). Serve at room temperature or chilled with fresh fruit or berries, if desired.
