Kasha

grain-kasha[1]Gluten-free kasha is perfect for those with wheat allergies. In the United States, kasha refers to roasted buckwheat groats. It has a strong, nutty aroma and toasty flavor.

Use kasha in salads, soups, breads, side dishes, pancakes, and waffles.

The Electric Pressure Cooker is Chef Brad’s favorite pan for cooking breakfast cereals. It cooks fast and turns to a keep warm mode. Grains stay hot and in perfect condition for hours when cooked using the electric pressure cooker.

Most grains do well in the pressure cooker. Natural release method is recommended. Meaning after suggested cooking time turn off heat and let the pressure come down naturally.

 

Kasha Strength

Kasha has a strong flavor. I like it used in salads with a rich balsamic dressing to complement the strong flavor of the grain.
