Did You Know...
Kasha is the Russian word for porridge made from buckwheat kernels or groats (oats with the hulls removed). To most Westerners, kasha has come to mean the roasted buckwheat kernels themselves, which are packaged and sold as kernels, groats and kasha.
About 2 cups fresh green beans, cut into pieces or cut French-style into lengthwise strips, can take the place of frozen beans when produce is abundant.
