I regret to say I was not particularly enthralled with this combination of flavours. One really needs to enjoy buckwheat to like this dish. Or have some good ideas on spices and condiments to dress it up.

Pasta & Kasha

 

Pasta & Kasha
1 medium onion, chopped
1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 cup kasha (buckwheat groats)
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups water
1/2 lb. bow tie, shell or rotini pasta
3 Tbsp. olive oil or vegan margarine
freshly ground black pepper to taste.

Cook onion in oil until translucent.
Add the kasha and salt.
Add water and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat, cover and simmer 25 minutes.
Meanwhile cook pasta in a separate pot.
When both pasta and kasha are ready, drain them and put them in the same dish.
Add olive oil and pepper and toss together.
