Directions:

  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion, carrot, mushrooms, celery, and garlic, and cook, stirring often, for 8-10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the kasha and cook, stirring often, for 2-3 minutes more. Add the wine and stir until it has been absorbed.
  2. Stir in 1/2 cup hot vegetable stock and reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer, stirring, until the stock is absorbed. Stir in another 1/2 cup of stock and repeat. Continue cooking and adding more stock for about 20 minutes, or until the kasha is tender but still a bit chewy.
  3. Stir in the beet and season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a serving bowl and sprinkle with cheese and parsley. Serve hot.
