Baked Kasha And Mushrooms
- 1 cup kasha
- 5 tablespoons butter
- 3 1/2 cups boiling water
- 1 medium onion chopped
- 1 pound mushrooms cut large pieces
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
- Salt to taste
- 1/2 cup sour cream or plain yogurt
Wash and rinse the kasha. In a large saucepan, melt 3 tablespoons of the butter. Add the kasha and cook constantly to keep the grains separated and coated for 3 minutes. Stir in the boiling water. Cover and cook for about 10 minutes.
In a sauté pan or skillet, sauté the onion in the remaining 2 tablespoons of the butter. Add the mushrooms and cook until all the liquid is absorbed. Add the chopped dill.
Blend the mushroom mixture into the kasha and add the salt. Place it in a buttered casserole dish. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven.
Top each serving with a large spoonful of sour cream.
