"Kasha is actually buckwheat and is a whole grain. It is mixed with onions and egg noodles to make this very simple and traditional Western European side dish. It is a staple at our holiday table and delicious drenched in pot roast or turkey gravy."

  1. In a saucepan, bring the chicken broth to a boil with the kasha. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes.
  2. Bring pot of lightly-salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook until al dente, 8 to 10 minutes; drain and rinse with cold water.
  3. Pour the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir the onions in the oil until lightly browned, 7 to 10 minutes. Stir the drained pasta and kasha into the onions, and season to taste with salt and pepper.

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...

This was my first attempt at this, and I have to say I was sad, I know I didn't cook the Kasha enough, it felt like we were eating noodles and sawdust and that CAN'T be what it was supposed to b...

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...

This was my first experience with Kasha and I loved it! A very hearty and healthy dish. I used just one onion and added a can of mushrooms. Added a splash of dry white wine to the cooking onions...

In my Eastern European home this dish is tops; especially when served with a slow roasted chicken. I add a drained can of mushrooms to this recipe...perfection!

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 chick...

As a child of Ukrainian heritage, I grew up with kasha. And hated it. With a passion. As an adult I figured I'd give it another go, as it is so good for you. This recipe made me want to eat ...

Yum! I didn't have a can of broth, so I used 1 3/4 c. broth from the box. 12 ounces of the pasta seemed like a bit too much; I cooked it all but probably only used 10 or 11 ounces. Saved a dish...

This is my first experience with Kasha and it was very tasty. I sauteed the kasha in a hot pan for 2-3 minutes before cooking (based on another eview's remark to keep it from getting mushy) I a...

Yummy, yummy! My parents thought it had potential but was too bland, but I loved it!
