Zen and the art of Kasha

(low carb non-wheat) toasted cooks faster and more evenly, but raw is cheaper to buy. Can be toasted in a wok.
  • Raw buckwheat groats cooked in a small pressure cooker: half cup groats to 1 cup water.
  • Toasted groats need as much as twice the water. Bring to boil then cover without flame, sit until finished. (¼ to 1/3 cup groats to a cup of water) [Another way is to add egg to the dry toasted groats then simmer in oil and salted water]
Flavors: (see page 157 of the Vegetarian Flavor Bible for more)
  • Toasted sesame oil (best used for flavor not frying, only a little is needed)
  • Stir-fried vegetables (optional)
  • Mushrooms (fabulous) fried or sauce
  • Garlic (essential)
  • Cheese: Feta, Goat (delectable) or
  • Sour cream (drained yogurt)
  • Tomatoes
  • Thyme, Parsley
  • Onions: (dry flakes or fried)
  • Walnuts, Cashews, Brazil nuts
  • Ginger, Lemon juice or a flavorful vinegar
  • Soy sauce: Shoyu or Tamari [or Umiboshi vinegar]
