Buckwheat, Mushrooms and Onions

This buckwheat, mushrooms and onions dish is so authentically Russian, that I think I lost all my Russian readers right here at the headline! Most of my Russian friends make this dish at home at least once every few weeks.

Buckwheat is a brown grain, available at health food stores. It’s nutty, tasty and rich in B-vitamins, iron and protein. Sauteed with onions and mushrooms, it’s hearty and filling enough to sustain you all by itself and with a side salad it’s just sublime!

Try vegetarian borsht, too to complete your immersion in healthy Russian cooking.
