This is our post on the vegan kitchen series— all time favorite kiddo meals brought to us by some really awesome vegan families. This raw buckwheat porridge is a perfect and fairly simple recipe to please most toddlers— and probably a ton of adults too! I’d eat it and change out the apples 🙂 The recipe is brought to us by Vanessa who say’s “Harvey even likes it so much, that we brought our mini food processor with us when we flew to france this summer!”  Vanessa and family live in Berlin where she actually owns her own vegan summer boot shop!

“Harvey is 21 months old. His other favorite meals are edamame, green, smoothies, pasta (all kinds of ;)), brown rice with beans, and almond butter on bread. We are raising him vegan, but in daycare he is getting organic vegetarian food”

  1. Thank you for this recipe! I've been meaning to try it for months and finally got round to it and it was really good. My toddler didn't like it but who cares, I did!

  2. this sounds so so good, i try to keep wesley with just whole foods – i am wondering if i can even find some of these things in switzerland (seems i always have to search out specialty food stores, which are rare!)
