1 cup cranberries, fresh or frozen
2 oranges, peeled and segmented
2 cups apple juice
1 cup cracked wheat or bulgur
1/2 cup soy flakes
1/2 cup buckwheat kasha
1/4 cup toasted hazelnuts
Heat a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add cranberries and 2 tablespoons water. Cook until cranberries soften and release their juices, about 2 minutes. Stir in orange segments. Remove from heat, and set aside.
Bring apple juice and 3 cups water to a boil in a large saucepan. Add cracked wheat, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook for 15 minutes. Add soy flakes, and cook, covered, 5 minutes more. Add kasha, and cook, covered, 10 minutes more. Uncover, and cook 5 minutes to let excess liquid evaporate. Spoon cereal into individual bowls. Add hazelnuts and fruit on top. Serve hot.
