Also called ‘kasha’, whole buckwheat grains give a pleasing chewy texture to this hearty vegetarian pilaf. Buckwheat is higher in protein than most grains, as well as providing B vitamins, minerals and fibre.
If you can't find buckwheat at the supermarket, it is readily available from health-food shops. * Mi-cuit tomatoes, sold on the deli counter, are semi-dried tomatoes with a very sweet flavour. Alternatively, use sun-dried tomatoes that have been packed in oil and use the oil from the jar in step 1.
The feta can be replaced with another semi-soft cheese, such as diced Brie.
agree with above review. something missing. still a very nourishing dish, im treating this as a blank canvas. - 11 Mar 2014
My partner liked this more than I did. He went back for a large helping of seconds. For me it was nice but not fabulous. Not sure what was the missing element for me. I've given it 4 stars instead of 3 as it was so popular with my partner. - 08 Jun 2011
