Kasha Varnishkes

GV comments: I was a vegetarian for 30 years before I turned vegan. One of the dishes I remember loving so much was a vegetarian version of Kasha Varnishkes, a traditional Eastern European Jewish dish. The trick of the dish was to saute the roasted buckwheat groats (also know as kasha) with a lightly whipped egg--the egg formed a coating around the groats, so that when you then simmered them in broth, they wouldn't dissolve into each other but stay nice and separate. Once I became a vegan, I thought I'd never taste that wonderful flavor again. But I found this recipe from the website Vegan Street. The dish brought back all my good memories of the flavor, and I've heard the same from people I've served this to.
