How to Cook Toasted Buckwheat Groats (Kasha)
This is the quickest and easiest way to cook deliciously fluffy buckwheat every time!
Rinse the groats under running cold water really well, using a mesh sieve, and drain well.
In a medium saucepan, combine buckwheat, water and salt.
Bring it to a boil over medium high heat. Then cover and reduce heat to medium low. Simmer until tender, about 15 minutes.
Fluff it with a fork or a wooden spoon. Stir in butter and salt to taste.
Note 1: I like to buy Russian toasted buckwheat groats, aka kasha, on Amazon. They're also available in Russian grocery stores. Please note, toasted buckwheat groats are golden brown and not the same as raw buckwheat, which is white greenish color.
