Step by step this way
  • 1.

    Pour the buckwheat into a pan and sprinkle in a little salt. Cover with 150ml boiling water and pop on a lid. Return to the boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 8 mins.

    Warm a large pan to a medium-high heat. Add the butter and allow to melt, then slide in the broccoli, mushroom slices, chopped spring onions and garlic. Sprinkle in a little salt and pepper. Fry for 4-5 mins, stirring occasionally, till tender and golden.

    Drain the buckwheat if necessary, then tip into the pan with the vegetables. Squeeze in the lemon juice. Toss together and warm through for 1 min.

    Scatter the salad into a salad bowl and toss through the rocket leaves. Divide onto plates and serve.
