Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a frying pan and sauté onions and sausage for about 2 minutes until onions start to sweat.
Add the mushrooms and sauté until they cook down and are soft.
Add the mushroom mixture to the buckwheat and stir until evenly mixed.
Pour the stock over the buckwheat mixture, add the butter and bring to a boil and reduce to low and simmer for 20 minutes, with the lid on. Just like making rice in a pot.
