What to do

  • 1. Pop your dried porcini into a small dish and cover with boiling water. Set aside.

  • 2. Pour your stock into a small saucepan and bring it to the boil whilst preparing your other ingredients. Once boiling, lower the heat to a gentle simmer.

  • 3. Heat a large saucepan on the stove over medium heat. Add the coconut oil, followed by the onion and garlic. Sauté for a few minutes until the onion is translucent. Add the buckwheat and sauté for a couple of minutes until well coated, stirring continuously. Pour in about 1/2 cup of broth and stir gently until the liquid has absorbed.

  • 4. Drain your porcini mushrooms and slice. Add them to the saucepan with the other mushrooms and another 1/2 cup liquid. Stir gently until the liquid has absorbed. Now add in the kale and another 1/2 cup liquid and continue the process.

  • 5. With the last 1/2 cup of stock throw in your parsley and some good pinches of sea salt. The process of adding liquid and absorption will take 15-20 minutes. Buckwheat has a good chew so don’t expect it to go soft. Once the liquid has completely absorbed add the coconut milk and heat, stirring for 3 minutes or so to thicken and heat. Season to taste.

  • 6. Serve with extra chopped, fresh parsley on the top.
