This recipe serves:   
2 cups water or vegetable stock
1 egg
1 cup kasha (roasted buckwheat groats)
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper

Cooking Instructions
1. Bring the water or stock to boil in a medium saucepan.

2. Beat the egg in a bowl with a fork, then stir in the kasha.

3. Heat a wide skillet over medium heat, add the kasha and cook, stirring until the grains are dry and separate (about 3 minutes). Add them to the boiling water, then add the butter and a dash of salt.
