Servings: 2




1 cup buckwheat grouts (raw or toasted)




½ cup plant based yoghurt

1 clove garlic

¼ tsp cumin, freshly ground

¼ cucumber, small cubed

Herbs (parsley, coriander)





1 bunch radishes, halved lengthwise

½ tbsp. olive oil

2 whole springs of thyme

1 garlic clove, smashed

Pinch of salt




Greens of your choice: lettuce, spinach, rocket, mustard leaves.

If your buckwheat is raw, toast it first in a pan and then rinse it before cooking.


Place the toasted buckwheat in a pan with 2 cups of water. Once boiling, reduce the heat and simmer for 10-12 minutes until tender then drain off any excess liquid. Set aside.

Finally, prepare your radishes. Heat a frying pan at medium-high heat, adding a splash of olive oil.


Add the radishes. Using a wooden spoon, toss the radishes in the pan while blistering and browning for about 1 minute.


Reduce the heat and toss again, cooking for another 6 minutes. Add the garlic, thyme, salt and oil, cooking for 2 more minutes.


Remove from the heat into a plate.
