  1. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and tip in the broccoli. Boil for 2 mins, then drain. Heat a griddle pan over a high heat. Griddle the broccoli for a couple mins each side until char lines appear. Set aside.

  2. In a jug, combine all the ingredients for the dressing, then season.

  3. Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the buckwheat and cook for 1 min until lightly golden, remove from the heat (it will continue to cook in the hot oil) and set aside for 1 min until golden brown.

  4. To serve, put a swirl of goat’s curd and a scattering of watercress in the centre of the plate. Top with the beetroot, radishes and broccoli. Add another large handful of watercress and drizzle over the dressing, then sprinkle over the popped buckwheat.
