  1. Soaking oats and buckwheat flakes: Soak overnight (8-10 h) in water and apple cider vinegar. Drain and rinse well in the morning.
  2. Soaking cashews: Soak cashews for 2-4 hours in water and pinch of salt. Drain and rinse well before making the cream.
  3. Blueberry porridge: Cook soaked oats and buckwheat in water and almond milk in a saucepan medium-high heat for ~5 minutes stirring often until porridge like consistency reached.
  4. Add pinch of salt and coconut oil and cook in low heat stirring for a minute or two.

  6. Smash berries to get a lovely color and whisk well.
  7. Berry compote: Add all ingredients into a saucepan and let simmer low-medium heat for ~10 minutes (until berries are soft). Stir gently every few minutes. Take away star anise before serving. Or leave them for a while if you want to take a pretty pic first :)
