Kasha, or buckwheat groats, are nutritious and full of flavor. Kasha Varnishkas is a traditional Jewish dish that combines kasha with noodles. I like to make Kasha with Bowties for holiday meals because it brings with it memories of generations past and thus adds meaning to our holiday celebration.

Recipe Ingredients for Kasha Varnishas

12 oz noodles
2 tablespoons oil
1 large onion, finely chopped
1 cup buckwheat groats
1 egg
2 cups chicken stock
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons margarine

Recipe Directions for Kasha Varnishas

  1. Cook bowtie noodles according to package directions. Drain. Set aside.

  2. In a heavy frying pan with a cover, heat oil. Saute the onions (for approximately 5 minutes). Set aside.

  3. In a bowl, beat the egg. Stir the kasha into the egg so that all the kernals are coated.

  4. Pour the egg-covered kasha into the frying pan. Fry over high heat, stirring, until the egg has dried and kernels are separate (for approximately 3 minutes).

  5. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, bring 2 cups of water or soup stock to a boil.

  6. Pour the hot liquid over the kasha. Add the onion and seasonings. Cover and simmer on low heat until all the liquid has been absorbed (for 10-15 minutes).

  7. While the kasha is still warm, stir in the bowtie noodles.

  8. Melt the margarine. Mix into the kasha and bowties.
