DIRECTIONS

  • Place water or stock in a 3 quart pot and bring to a boil on high heat.
  • Add buckwheat, cover, reduce heat to simmer and cook until kasha is tender and liquid is absorbed, approximately 15 minutes.
  • Gently fluff with a fork and place in a large mixing bowl.
  • While buckwheat is cooking, place 1 tablespoon of sesame oil in a medium size sauté pan on medium high heat.
  • Add garlic, lime leaf and red bell pepper, cook for 8 minutes, stirring frequently, adding small amounts of water as necessary to prevent sticking.
  • Add to bowl with remaining ingredients and mix well.
  • Variation:
  • Add a handful of rinsed and chopped kale and 1/2 cup of cubed tofu while cooking buckwheat.
