The first time I cooked this it ended up as mush, think I need to look for another recipe and try again.

Kasha has a lovely nutty and lightly roasted taste. It's a great addition to muesli or it can be added to porridge. When cooking, it has a short cooking time and it can be cooked together with quinoa or rice, etc to create a more interesting flavour. Kasha is not a grain but a seed and can be suitable for those avoiding traditional grains.

This tasted really strong - and not like anything I've tried before so I can't even describe it very well. It has a kind of burnt taste and is very crunchy; when cooked it turns to mush if left to cook for too long but still has odd little sharp bits. My oldest loves it and munches on it quite happily as well as adding it to the buckwheat flakes we got which were much milder and I enjoyed those far more. The other two kids don't mind it but don't go out of their way for it, they prefer the flakes too. All in all, I would say it is definitely worth a try for the price and for the health benefits; but if you know you have sensitive taste buds, try the untoasted varieties first ;-)

Lovely nutty flavour. Tends to disintegrate if cooked too long, go for the shorter length on the instructions. Good base for gluten free packed lunches - I add avocado, tomato, tofu and lots of lemon juice.
