Lentil and sunflower patties with a fresh apple pickle and salad of buckwheat, sugar snap peas and capsicum tossed with a dill and lemon dressing.
1. Place buckwheat in a saucepan with plenty of water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 15-20 minutes. Drain and rinse.

2. Chop dill and combine with grated lemon zest, juice from 1/2 lemon and 3 tbsp olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Roughly grate apple. Combine with remaining 1/2 lemon juice, 1/2 tbsp olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.

3. Drain lentils and place in large bowl, mash with a fork. Mix in oats & sunflower seeds, crushed garlic, sliced basil leaves and 1 tbsp oil. Season with salt and pepper, combine well.

4. Heat a frypan over medium-high heat with 1/2 tbsp oil. Shape 1/4 cup measures of patty mixture with oiled hands and place into pan. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden and cooked through.
