“Kasha is actually buckwheat and is a whole grain. It is mixed with onions and egg noodles to make this very simple and traditional Western European side dish. It is a staple at our holiday table and delicious drenched in pot roast or turkey gravy.”

Directions

  1. In a saucepan, bring the chicken broth to a boil with the kasha. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes.
  2. Bring pot of lightly-salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook until al dente, 8 to 10 minutes; drain and rinse with cold water.
  3. Pour the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir the onions in the oil until lightly browned, 7 to 10 minutes. Stir the drained pasta and kasha into the onions, and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Excellent basic recipe! Traditionally, the onion is sauteed in chicken fat, but being vegetarian, I use EVOO like the recipe called for. Instead of chicken broth, I use a strong mushroom broth, and then toss a dozen sliced creminis in with the onions to sautee. Don't be shy with your broth and fat in this dish - it's where most of the flavor comes from. One note on the instructions: The way I was taught, you dry-roast the kasha in a hot pan for a few minutes, then bring water/broth to a boil BEFORE adding the kasha. This way it doesn't get mushy.

I love to add an extra veggie like broccoli or something colorful... Otherwise this is just as I have made all of my life!!! Perfection, along with heathful!!! Kasha, or buckwheat, is a complete protein!!!

This was my first experience with Kasha and I loved it! A very hearty and healthy dish. I used just one onion and added a can of mushrooms. Added a splash of dry white wine to the cooking onions and mushrooms. Used veggie broth instead of chicken. Tossed in some parsley. I'll make this again!
