    This recipe was surprisingly easy and tasty and was as easy as rice to make and a heck of a lot more flavorful.

    Kasha Or Buckwheat Groats

    2 tablespoons butter
    1/2 cup finely chopped onion
    Garlic, one or two cloves chopped, to taste, optional.........heck, I added 4
    2 cups fresh or canned chicken broth
    1 cup kasha or buckwheat groats, preferably medium grain (I used toasted buckwheat for more flavor)
    1 egg, well beaten
    Salt to taste if desired (I like to use a seasoning salt with herbs)
    1.Heat butter in a saucepan and add onion. Cook, stirring, until wilted. Add broth. Bring to boil, then lower to simmer.
    2.Put kasha in a nonstick skillet and add egg. Stir to blend and cook over gentle heat, stirring all over the bottom, until grains of kasha are coated with egg but grains remain separate. Cook until grains are slightly toasted and lightly browned.
    3.Pour the simmering broth over kasha. Add salt and cover tightly. Cook about 15 minutes over very low heat or until all the liquid has been absorbed and grains are tender. If necessary, continue cooking 5 minutes longer or until grains are tender
    Add chopped fresh parsley or other herbs if desired.

    Interesting about frying the groats in with the egg before cooking in water.....that worked well?
