Morning Kasha

Kasha is a grain most often made from buckwheat, but can also contain other grains like millet, rye, oats, wheat, or barley. When cooked, this is a popular dish in Eastern Europe. This food can be eaten at any time of the day, but using leftover kasha is great for reheating to make a meal for breakfast. 


Prep Time: 5 minutes

Prep Notes: This recipe is best made when you have leftover cooked kasha. If you are making the kasha fresh, allow for additional time.

Cooking Time: 2 minutes

Yields: 4 servings



  • 1 cup cooked kasha
  • 1 apple, diced
  • 2 tbsps almond or cashew butter
  • 2 tbsps water (use more if needed)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Dairy or non-dairy milk
  • Maple syrup



  1. Place cooked kasha in a steamer over boiling water and steam until warm
  2. Combine warm kasha and apple in a breakfast bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix nut butter with 2 tablespoons of water.
  4. Blend with fork until the consistency becomes creamy and add a bit more water as needed (mixture should not be too runny).
  5. Pour nut sauce over kasha and apples and mix well.
  6. Sprinkle with cinnamon and drizzle with maple syrup.
  7. Add a splash of the milk of your choice.
