Kasha Grain Bowl: the savory sister to my Kasha Breakfast Bowl I posted back in January. So you can have kasha for breakfast and lunch, AND dinner!
If you’re just tuning in, kasha is an easy to make and healthy pseudo-grain (it’s actually a seed if we’re getting technical). It’s naturally gluten-free so it’s a great choice no matter what your diet is!
These are one of my favorite type of meals for lunch. Grain bowls are the great way to use up some leftovers or to get in more of those daily veggie servings.
What Does a Grain Bowl Contain?
Typically, they include a grain as a base, greens, protein, additional vegetables, toppings and a dressing/sauce. Then your meal is served!
Below, I’ve come up with a little chart to help you create the *perfect* grain bowl. It’s a great tool to print out and save for later as a quick reference!
Now Let’s Move on to How it’s Made:
- 2 cups water
- 1 cup toasted buckwheat kasha
- sprinkle of sea salt
- In a small to medium lidded pot, bring the water and salt to a boil.
- Stir in the kasha and cover with a lid.
- When it is boiling again, turn the heat to low and cook for 12-15 minutes.
- Strain off any excess water, fluff with a fork and enjoy!

If you’ve made this, I’d love to hear what great combination you created!
