Warm Buckwheat Salad with Roasted Shallots, Apples, and Frisée

Kasha--roasted buckwheat that's been hulled and crushed--has a nutty, smoky flavor that goes well with sweet apples and mildly bitter frisée. You could swap in spelt or wheat berries for the buckwheat.

  • Yield: Serves 3 as a main course, or 6 as a side (serving size: 1 cup)
  • Total:50 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup coarsely cracked buckwheat groats (kasha)*
  • 5 large shallots, peeled and quartered
  • 2 tart-sweet apples such as Gala, cored and cut into 1/2-in. wedges
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 1 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 3 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 cup frisée lettuce pieces
  • 1/2 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley

Preparation

1. Bring 2 cups water to a boil in a medium pot. Add buckwheat, cover, and reduce heat to low. Cook until water is absorbed, about 10 minutes. Set aside.

2. Preheat oven to 425°. Toss shallots and apples with 1/2 tsp. each salt and pepper and 1 tbsp. oil, spread on a baking sheet, and roast, stirring occasionally, until apples are golden and barely tender and shallots are lightly caramelized, 12 to 15 minutes.

3. Whisk together remaining 4 tbsp. oil, remaining 1/2 tsp. each salt and pepper, the vinegar, mustard, and honey in a large bowl. Add reserved buckwheat, warm apples and shallots, frisée, and parsley and toss gently.
