Grilled onion kasha

Kasha is called buckwheat groats. It is popularly consumed in Eastern Europe and many Ashkenazi Jews recognize it as “Kasha Varnishkes,” which is also known as kasha with bowties. Kasha is a very underrated grain, probably because it is usually prepared in a flavorless and dry way. It is beyond delicious and filling – give it another shot with this easy recipe.
