Organic Buckwheat Kasha - 400g

Description: Buckwheat “grains” are actually the seeds of an herb with physical resemblance to beechnuts and nutritional similarities to wheat. Kasha, or whole roasted buckwheat, is made from roasting organic white buckwheat. It is toasted and golden brown in colour.

Ingredients: Toasted hulled buckwheat groats.

Directions: Kasha can be boiled like rice. The secret for a light, fluffy texture is to seal the kernels with an egg before hot water is added. Mix 1 cup kasha with 1 beaten egg to coat and place in a skillet on medium heat. Let dry for 2-4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour 2 cups boiling water on the buckwheat and reduce heat to low. Cover and let steam for 10–15 minutes until water has been completely absorbed and kernels are tender.

Storage: Product should be stored in a cool, dry area at a temperature not exceeding 15˚C, for a shelf life of 6 months to 1 year.
