  3. Add the diced mushrooms to the lightly fried onions and also fry. Mushrooms should become soft. Then the onion-mushroom mixture needs to be salt and pepper.
  4. To carefully sort buckwheat, separating buckwheat from the husk and garbage, rinse in cold running water.
  5. Add groats to the pan to the mushrooms and pour hot water. Close the lid tightly and cook over low heat for about 20 minutes.
  6. Turn off the fire and leave our buckwheat porridge to “languish” under the lid for another 10 minutes. You can wrap a towel.
  7. Porridge can be mixed only when it is completely ready.
  8. Lean buckwheat porridge with mushrooms is a self-sufficient dish that does not require any additions. The only thing I do is lightly sprinkle porridge with chopped parsley.
