Mixed Metaphor

What you need: 

1 cup kasha
vegetable broth
1 cup chopped onions
lots of chopped garlic (at least 4 cloves worth or more to taste)
8 oz sliced mushrooms
1-2 packages baby spinach

What you do: 

Prepare Kasha the usual way: I just toast it, then steam it-add 1 cup kasha to 2 cups boiling water or vegetable broth and simmer about 7 minutes.
While that's cooking, sauté onion and garlic in olive oil or olive oil spray, add mushrooms and cook till done, then add spinach and stir a minute or two until wilted. Add a splash of wine, balsamic vinaigrette or Italian dressing and heat through.
Combine the two, and enjoy!
I called it mixed metaphor because the spinach part is kind of Italian and the kasha is Eastern European

Preparation Time: 
10 minutes
Cooking Time: 


Thanks for a new kasha recipe! I've had limited success finding them but this was good.
