Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, or 1 tablespoon canola oil and 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, minced
  • 1 large carrot, diced into 1/4-inch pieces
  • 2 cups thinly sliced trimmed creminis (stems removed before slicing)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup kasha (whole or coarse)

Directions

Heat oil, then saute onions until soft. Add carrots and saute until the onions take on some color. Add mushrooms, then garlic. Saute for 2 more minutes. Meanwhile, mix kasha with eggs and seasonings.
