"Kasha is another name for buckwheat groats, which are very healthy and full of nutrients. They have sort of a smokey flavor, which pairs very well with the tomatoes in this recipe to make a deep, satisfying soup. Recipe attributed to "Lean and Luscious" by Bobbie Hinman and Millie Snyder."

"At first, we thought, "onion, carrot, celery, tomatoes, vegetable stock, and kasha, how can you go wrong with that?" Sorry, but this just didn't work for us. Perhaps it was the 40 minute simmer time before adding the kasha. We'll not be trying this again."
"Very good!!! Quick and easy , yet tasted very much like what we call a "Sunday Pot" dinner. I had a 35 ounce can of whole tomatoes, so I used that and chopped them up a bit...then to "even" things out I added more carrot or maybe I did that because I love carrots (:wink:)!! I also used a very spicy homemade veggie broth that had a lot of basil, garlic and peppery flavors...that all blended nicely with the sweet tomato/carrot and the nutty kasha!! A lovely hearty, healthy dinner...perfect for this Fall rather chilly, damp day - really warmed our hearts and bellies - YUM!!! - Thanks Roosie!! :)"
"You'll want to at least double this recipe if you're feeding a family. It was really good with fresh bread to dip in."
"This was delicious. I changed the recipe a bit to adapt to what I had in the house. I only had one 14 oz. can of tomatoes and I didn't have any celery. I added one can garbanzo beans w/ water, and added a bit of frozen spinach as well. I also only had chicken stock on hand, so used that instead. The end result was so flavorful and incredibly healthy. I loved this and my husband loved it, too!!!"
"this was a very easy soup to make and the kasha adds a unique, earthy taste to it. will definitely make again!"
"This was my first experience with kasha and it was lovely to say the least. I put some more kasha in than the recipe called for and it turned it from a soup into a delightful oatmealesque consistency. My family loved it too ^_^"
"Oh yummy! My last try at kasha was good but not "I want to make it again" good. This is really good. Nice blend of the smoky flavor of kasha and the tomatoes. I used more tomatoes then called for (a 28 oz can and a 14 oz can of tomatoes primavera) and vegetable broth. I also just used up what onions I had in the fridge and it ended up being more then 2 cups. And they were both red & white onions. I think I really liked the addition of the red onion and would highly recommend it to anyone else who tries this. Thanks Roosie, for another healthy winner!"
