Trying to eat healthier but also looking to save money on dinner? Mixing ground meat with whole grains is a good way to do both. Here, kasha, a whole grain made from buckwheat, adds a delicious toasty flavor when mixed with ground beef, while also stretching the meat to make six servings. (From Betty Crocker's "Money Saving Meals" cookbook).
