1 cup kasha (buckwheat groats), coarse or fine grind
2 cups boiling water
1 cup small bowtie pasta
1 small onion, chopped
1 egg, lightly beaten
butter or oil
1 package tofukan ( marinated tofu ), optional
salt, garlic powder, seasoned salt to taste

Cook pasta in boiling water according to package
directions; drain and set aside.

Heat dry non-stick skillet; add kasha, stirring 2 to 3
minutes, until browned and fragrant. Add egg, and
stir well. Egg will dry on kernels, coating them. Add
2 c. boiling water, cover, reduce heat, and simmer
until the water is absorbed, 3-5 minutes for fine grind
and 10-12 minutes for whole kernels.

Saute onions in butter or oil. If you want more protein,
slice tofukan into thin strips and saute along with

Mix pasta, kasha, and onions, heat through, and serve.

Makes 4 to 6 servings.
