    I found a box of these in a different section of my local shop and from the nutrition content look quite good. Anyone had them ? Any suggestions other than eating them on there own ?

    If I remember correctly they're either toasted or untoasted. Toasted tastes better. You could soak them in water or milk overnight in the fridge and then cook them with your oats. If you like that nubby texture then try steel cut oats as well; I'd also soak those overnight. (I prefer mushy.)

    Look for quinoa; it has more/better protein and is easier to cook. Kind of like rice texture-wise but with a different flavor. Takes much less time to cook than brown rice; 10 minutes or so.

    Buckwheat groats = kasha varnishkes:



    Wasn't Chef Bart charismatic?

    I make a healthier version of this dish substituting quinoa for the buckwheat groats and brown rice pasta for the white flour bows. It's also good when you add ground meat and fresh peas (but then it's really not kasha varnishkes per se). Optimally it tastes best mixed with carmelized onions - yum.
