Why I Love This Recipe

Some people like to serve it in place of rice or noodles in soup.

May be kosher and/or vegetarian, depending on what type of fat you use.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 C Kashe (brown buckwheat groats, medium or whole)
1 egg
2 C boiling water
1 tsp salt
2 T fat


Put kashe into egg and mix until all kernels are coated.

Turn into preheated large frying pan over medium heat

With fork keep moving around and pressing down until the kernels are all dry and separated.

Have the water and salt boiling in another pot

Pour kashe into salted boiling water.

Cook over very small flame, about 30 minutes, very tightly covered.

Look and see, it may need another half cup or so of water as it is steaming.

Just before serving add the 2 T or so of fat, or butter would do.

Serve with meat gravy or whatever.
