This dish is especially warming and nourishing on cold winter days. Buckwheat nourishes the lungs, kidneys and bladder and aids in eliminating water or fluid retention. It's a safe grain for those with wheat allergies. By adding some cooked pasta bows to this dish, it becomes a traditional Jewish favorite - kasha varnishkas.
