Pepper for breakfast? That sounds really weird. Where did you get the recipe? For breakfast you want to make it like hot cerial, with milk and maybe sugar.

Was groats brown or greenish when you bought them? I hate the green kind, unless you fry them before cooking. And even then they still have a taste of something that was row/green.
Was it a whole groats or cracked? Fry some onion in oil add to kasha mixh and heat up in frying pan. Also add some cooked small noodles, like bowties, or I prefer small shells, about 3 parts kasha 2 parts noodles.

That coud mean only one thing kasha was unddercooked. That would be a perfect wasy to describe it. You reall have to make kasha right otherwise it is garbage. I am yet to meat a person who has not liked my kasha. Even my wife likes it.

The kasha was brown and cracked. And, the recipe came with the Kasha (minus the ground black pepper--but my DH skipped the butter, salt, and pepper and treated it like oatmeal--I don't think I can get Kasha on the menu again). I found it had a weird aftertaste. I should've gone with the grits for breakfast--which I love with salt, pepper, and butter.

Thats the stuff that tastes like cardboard right?

Oh, maybe I'm thinking of Kashi...

EDIT: I think the aftertaste is the envelope glue they can't quite get out of the furnish they form the Kashi from...

Oh--that's the weird aftertaste...I couldn't place it, I gave up eating paste in grade school.

I gave the Kasha another try--prepared it the way CharlieD described. I fought the urge to smother it with ketchup...it is most likely an acquired taste, much like lutefisk.

in the UK Black Pudding (pigs blood sausage) is a major component of the traditional artery clogging breakfast fry up, I like to use the polish black pudding sausage with Kasha in it(Kashanka) as its the healthy option

Blood sausage is big in Ukraine; they make it really good too.

But as far as kasha goes, I suppose it is an acquired taste. For a life of me I cannot touch oatmeal or, cream of wheat. Or any other grain like hot cereal. I think they are repulsive.

I wish you could try my kasha. And yes it does have a specific taste, kasha taste so to speak. I suppose it is like if somebody likes mashed potato, and instead is offered mashed carrots or sweet potato for example.
