DIRECTIONS

  • Heat water, 2 tbs margarine, salt & pepper, onion, & veggies. Keep at a boil on med. high.
  • Beat egg in a bowl.
  • 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!).
  • 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.
  • Reduce heat to low and quickly stir in the boiling liquid and veggies.
  • Cover tightly and simmer for 5 minute.
  • 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!).
  • Eat now, or put in fridge to chill.
