A beautiful one pan dish with aromas of saffron and the goodness of buckwheat, packed with vegetables and finished with a lift of lemon and parsley.
1. Boil 1L water in the kettle.
Heat a frypan over medium heat with 1 tbsp oil. Dice sweet potato into 2cm pieces, add to pan as you go. Add buckwheat and saffron threads. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes until fragrant.

2. Add 3 tbsp tomato paste and crumbled stock cube to pan. Pour in 3 cups boiled water and stir to combine. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, trim and halve beans. Halve tomatoes and remove corn from cob. Add to pan and stir through. Simmer uncovered for a further 10 minutes until buckwheat is tender and water absorbed (add more water if needed). Season to taste with salt and pepper.

4. Roughly chop (or pull apart) artichokes. Wedge lemon and chop parsley.

5. Scatter artichokes and parsley over paella. Serve with lemon wedges.
