    Excellent basic recipe! Traditionally, the onion is sauteed in chicken fat, but being vegetarian, I use EVOO like the recipe called for. Instead of chicken broth, I use a strong mushroom broth, and then toss a dozen sliced creminis in with the onions to sautee. Don't be shy with your broth and fat in this dish - it's where most of the flavor comes from. One note on the instructions: The way I was taught, you dry-roast the kasha in a hot pan for a few minutes, then bring water/broth to a boil BEFORE adding the kasha. This way it doesn't get mushy.  -  03 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I love to add an extra veggie like broccoli or something colorful... Otherwise this is just as I have made all of my life!!! Perfection, along with heathful!!! Kasha, or buckwheat, is a complete protein!!!  -  17 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I wrote this recipe and please note it was edited slightly prior to submitting. I don't know why they did that. I toast the kasha with egg in the pan first, then add the liquid (usually chicken broth or water with bouillon), cover for around 5-9 minutes and it's done. I NEVER DRAIN my kasha. This recipe is just a matter of preparing everything separate and tossing together. When in doubt, follow manufacture instructions. (hint)  -  14 Dec 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
