Braces friendly breakfast recipes

If you want something different from milk and cereal in the morning, here are some recipes to try that are not only good but braces friendly also.

Cornmeal and Buckwheat Porridge
1/3 cup kasha
8 cups water
1 1/3 cups polenta (not instant)
Pinch of salt
3 tbsp unsalted butter, divided
Grade B maple syrup

1. Grind Kasha: add kasha to a blender or food processor and pulse briefly until grains are coarsely broken up.  Set aside.
2.  Bring water to boil over medium high heat in a medium large saucepan.  Stir in polenta, kasha and salt.  Reduce heat to low.  Simmer, stirring often, until grains are tender and consistency is thick but not dry or stiff, about 40 minutes.
3.  To serve, ladle porridge into bowls while hot.  To each porridge with a pat of butter and a generous drizzle of maple syrup.

Ginger Chicken Congee
4 cups chicken stock
6 cups water
2 inch piece ginger, peeled and minced
1 cup long grain white rice, such as jasmine
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
Fresh ground black pepper
Chopped chives, for garnish
Crushed peanut, for garnish
Chili-sesame oil, for garnish

1.  In a medium-large saucepan, combine stock, water, ginger, rice and 1 1/2 teaspoon salt.  Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then stir and reduce heat to low.  Simmer, stirring occasionally, until rice has broken down and congee has consistency of a thin oatmeal, about 1 hour.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.
2.  Ladle congee into bowls.  Garnish each portion with chives, peanuts and drizzle with oil.
