Method

  • Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan then add the garlic and cook for 1 min, turning from time to time.
  • Stir in the buckwheat and lentils and cook for 3 mins until the buckwheat is well coated on all sides.
  • Add the boiling water, tomato juice, rosemary, salt and pepper, bring to the boil then reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 15 mins, or until the buckwheat is tender.
  • Meanwhile toast the walnuts in a dry frying pan for about 5mins, turning from time to time. When cool enough to handle, coarsely chop.
