Buckwheat with Mushrooms

I love buckwheat. Too bad it’s not well appreciated here in the U.S., but I hope it will catch on. Buckwheat is crazy healthy; which makes me even happier that my son ate two bowls of this in one day! It’s a wonderful alternative to rice.

The combination of buckwheat with mushrooms, onion and broth is scrumptious. You’ll forget that it’s a side dish; chomping it down then realizing you’ve missed the chicken and carrots on your plate. Read on to find out more about the triple giveaway!! Woohoo!

A note on buckwheat: I’ve never been disappointed with any brands from the local Russian store. Buckwheat that is already toasted is best, otherwise it can get a little mushy. If it’s not toasted, you can toast it yourself on a skillet for a few minutes which should help.

Ingredients for Buckwheat with Mushrooms:

1 cup whole kernel brown buckwheat
1 Tbsp olive oil or canola oil
2 cups reduced sodium chicken broth
1/2 tsp salt (omit salt if using regular broth)
3-4 mushrooms, sliced
1/2 medium onion, finely diced
1 Tbsp butter

How to Make Buckwheat with Mushrooms:

1. Chop mushrooms and finely dice onion. Rinse the buckwheat (get rid of that dust) and drain well.

2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Once it’s hot, add 1 tbsp olive oil. Add buckwheat and saute, stirring occasionally for 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a medium pot.

3. In the same skillet (no need to wash the pan; you’re welcome), Add 1 Tbsp oil. Add onions and Saute for 1-2 minutes. Add mushrooms and continue to saute until mushrooms are soft. Add your mix to the buckwheat and stir.

4. Pour your broth over the buckwheat mix. Stir in 1/2 tsp salt (add salt only if using reduced-sodium broth) and top with 1 Tbsp butter. Bring the pot to a boil then reduce heat to low. Close the pot with a tight fitting lid. Simmer for 15 minutes or until kernels are soft and fluffy. Remove from heat and let it stand covered for an additional 10 minutes.

Notes:

If you want to incorporate more buckwheat into your diet but don’t want to fuss with mushrooms and such, here’s the lazy-gal’s version (don’t judge me). In a bowl of a rice maker, add 1 cup rinsed buckwheat, 1.5 cups broth or water (instead of 2 cups water; rice makers are efficient like that), 1/2 tsp salt, 1-2 Tbsp butter on top. Close the lid and push the white rice button. About 15-20 minutes later you have perfect buckwheat.

    I cooked buckwheat for the time today, I cooked it as I cook rice. I added half a teaspoon of cumin and an oxo chicken cube. I washed the buckwheat and added to the boiling water, then cooked it covered on low heat. My son turned up his nose when I told him it was buckwheat, but he tasted it. He had second helpings Reply

    Just curious. Why do you make plain buckwheat with 1 3/4 cups water to one cup buckwheat but in this recipe it’s with 2 cups of broth to one cup buckwheat?

    I though about adding other vegetables to the mix like maybe zucchini but now I’m confused what my portions should be. Reply

      Hi Amy, if you are adding sauteed vegetables, I would go with these proportions. I added more here because the mushrooms will absorb some and plump up. Reply

    Greetings Natasha!

    I have a little dilemma…
    My husband does NOT like mushrooms whatsoever. I love them, but I have also learned to bypass them when preparing a meal or whatnot. Can you please be so kind as to possibly giving me an idea on what I can replace the mushrooms with? Same goes for other meals I seen on your site. They are delicious looking but I can never seem to figure out what I could replace them with. For instance, I made the Podlivka, and that too, requires mushrooms. So i just grabbed what was next to them in the grocery store: eggplant πŸ™‚ It didn’t turn out bad at all… in fact, it was really yummy! I just want to see your input on this one. What would be the best mushroom replacement for the grechka??? Thank you!!!

    Here is a recipe my mom used to make and I still make it as a treat for my grown boys. After I’ve boiled and mashed some potatoes, I pour raw buckwheat into the hot potatoes. Cracked buckwheat gives a finer texture, whole buckwheat gives a nuttier taste. Mix in the buckwheat slowly until you have a nice ratio of potato to buckwheat. Spread this into a pie plate or rectangular baking dish and bake uncovered until the top is golden brown and crispy. Serve this with blobs of butter and even bigger blobs of sour cream. Not sure if this is anyway where near Ukrainian in nature but my mom was and she ate/made this all of her life. Reply

I was baby sitting for a friend, and she asked me to make it for her little girl. Since I’ve never made it before, I went onto your website to check for directions.
    I saw this recipe… Looked easy enough, so I made it.

    Hey Natasha: Love your blog! I use broth (chicken mainly) in almost all recipes that call for adding “water” to the mix, not matter what it is. Broth provides so much more depth of flavor and richness.

    Merci! Reply

Overall I think it tastes better and I love the fact that it has no MSG’s. Thank you for taking the time to share your recipes. Can’t wait to buy some Canadian flour and try your mom’s recipe for the rogaliki from your previous post. YUM! Reply

    Hi Natasha! I use the vegetable BTB for vegan dishes, and the chicken one for non-vegetarian food. My latest venture is making a vegan red borshch and it turned out very good. I used the vegetable one as a very easy substitute for the chicken broth and nobody could tell the difference, but it was all vegan nonetheless. Love the whisk in this set too! Reply
