I have been so M.I.A. Life has been incredibly busy and I regret neglecting this blog for so long. I enjoy doing this and I have been taking pictures and notes on what I’ve been making but haven’t been posting. I suck. I have a lot of stuff that will be coming up here soon.
As for this recipe, I love it. So easy and delicious. I love the chili garlic sauce with it.
8 ounces dried bowtie pasta
1/4 cup canola or vegetable oil
1 cup kasha (buckwheat groats)
For the Dressing:
1 bunch scallions, finely sliced, about 2 cups, divided
1 tablespoon light soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
3 tablespoons Chopped cilantro
Chinese garlic chili paste or hot chili oil for serving
Meanwhile, make the scallion oil: Set aside 1/4 of scallion greens for garnish. Cook remaining scallions in remaining oil in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, until the slivers of scallions are browned and sweet, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat, add soy sauce and sesame oil, and stir to combine. Add pasta, kasha, scallion oil, reserved sliced scallions, and cilantro to a large mixing bowl and toss to combine. Season to taste with salt. Serve with garlic chili paste or chili oil.
