    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 small egg
    • 3 cups water
    • 4 tablespoons margarine
    • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 cup fine grain roasted buckwheat groats (often packaged as "Kasha" in a box at the supermarket)
    • 1/2 cup minced dried onion
    • 1/4 cup chopped mushroom (button or whatever is in season!)
    • 1/4 cup chopped celery


    1. 1
      Heat water, 2 tbs margarine, salt & pepper, onion, & veggies. Keep at a boil on med. high.
    2. 2
      Beat egg in a bowl.
    3. 3
      Add buckwheat to the egg and stir to coat evenly. (This step is absolutely necessary if you don't want buckwheat groats the consistency of oatmeal!).
    4. 4
      In a large skilet, add egg-coated buckwheat and cook on high for 3 min., stirring constantly, until egg is dried and buckwheat groats are separated.
    5. 5
      Reduce heat to low and quickly stir in the boiling liquid and veggies.
    6. 6
      Cover tightly and simmer for 5 minute.
    7. 7
      Stir in the remaining 2 tbs margarine and any additional spices you may want to add (I've used some garlic powder or Cajun spices, depending on my mood!).
    8. 8
      Eat now, or put in fridge to chill.

      I made just this the other night, I doubled the amount and added 1 cup of finely diced carrots. We had it as a main course and loved it. I was going to post my own, but you beat me to it! I recommend this to people who think they don't like trying new things--it is really good.
