Kasha (Buckwheat) with Mushrooms, Onions and Green Peppers

Buckwheat. No. The small "b" buckwheat.

No, not Eddie Murphy. The grain. a.k.a. Kasha. I imagine that the package for the brand of Kasha I buy hasn't changed in 20 years, minus the new little banner that says "wheat & gluten free."

Kasha is one of those grains that rarely make, just because I keep forgetting that it's there. It's quite good, with a slight nutty flavour.

When My Sweet and Savory posted a Kasha recipe, it gave me a kick to get moving on it myself. It's quite simple to make (following the package directions) and you simply add whatever vegetables and spices you are in the mood for.

I opted to load up on mushrooms and other vegetables that happen to be in the fridge. Meredith and I demolished the entire dish for lunch in a single sitting.

Kasha (Buckwheat) with Mushrooms, Onions and Green Peppers

  • 1 cup vegetable stock
  • 1 cup water
  • 1+1 tbsp butter
  • 1 cup kasha (buckwheat)
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1-2 cups mushrooms (your preference)
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. In a deep pan, set stock, water and 1 tbsp butter to boil.
  2. Mix kasha and egg until kasha is coated.
  3. In cast-iron pan, fry kasha on medium-high heat until egg is dry.
  4. Add the kasha to the liquid, cover, bring to a boil and then let simmer on medium-low for 10-15 minutes until kasha is fluffy.
  5. While the kasha is cooking, fry onion, mushrooms and pepper in the remaining 1 tbsp butter and add salt, pepper and paprika.
  6. Combine kasha and vegetables into a single pan before serving.
