  • 1 cup raw buckwheat groats
  • 3 cups rice milk
  • 1 banana sliced
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. vanilla
  • chopped nuts optional


  • Rinse buckwheat and place in Instant Pot.
  • Add rice milk, banana, raisins, cinnamon and vanilla and close lid.
  • Be sure the steam release is in the closed position and manually select 6 minutes high-pressure cooking time.
  • When timer beeps at the end of the cooking cycle, turn pot off and allow time for the natural release of pressure (about 20 minutes.)
  • Once pressure is released, carefully open lid and stir porridge with a long handled spoon.
  • Add more rice milk to individual servings to achieve preferred consistency. Sprinkle with chopped nuts if desired.
