Savory Buckwheat Breakfast Bowl

Do you ever go to sleep thinking about what to have for breakfast? I do all the time. I plan it out in my head because I get so excited for breakfast foods! I typically have toast, oatmeal or pancakes. I decided to switch it up a bit to make a savory bowl!

It was my first time making a savory breakfast bowl like this. It definitely won’t be the last! The asian in me thinks of porridge or “juk” – which is what I eat in cold weather or when I’m sick. It’s so comforting!
