This looks great! By the way, is it raw or roasted buckwheat?

Thanks Jen, it's roasted (or toasted) buckwheat. I know that it's also called kasha abroad. In fact, all the Russian cuisine recipes require the toasted buckwheat, as it's a traditional and staple food here, while the raw buckwheat is something new for us. To be honest I haven't tried it yet.

I tried it (with green beans instead of bell pepper because we didn't have any :) ) and it was very good! I like the spicy touch of the chili peppers! I think it is meant to be a side dish, though, isn't it? I think it would have gone great with a veggie burger. Will try that next time. :)
