If you get this going and then fry trout on the side, it will probably be done at the same time, offering a satisfying complete meal.
• 1 cup toasted buckwheat groats
• 3/4 cup dehydrated or 1/3 cup freeze-dried string beans
• 1/2 cup dried mushrooms, sliced thin and chopped fine, or if you prefer mushrooms chunky, cut and presoak then for 20 to 30 minutes
• 1 tablespoon onion flakes
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/4 teaspoon oregano
• 1 teaspoon oil
• 3 1/4 cups water
Slowly add all ingredients to boiling water and oil, keeping the water boiling. Stir, cover, and let cook at a low boil for 20 minutes. Serve with tamari soy sauce or sesame salt.
Variation: this could be made a One-Pot Meal by simply adding a handful of dried shrimp at the beginning or a small can of shrimp at the end.
