Buckwheat Noodles with Goat’s Cheese


Love trying out some of the recipes in ’30 minute Cookbook’ by Jenni Fleetwood (published 2005)

This one takes around 15 minutes to prepare and cook.


(serves 4)

350g. (12oz) buckwheat noodles
50g (2oz) butter
2 finely chopped garlic cloves
4 shallots, peeled and sliced
75g. (3oz) roughly chopped lightly roasted hazelnuts
Large handful of rocket leaves
175g. (6oz) goat’s cheese
Salt and ground pepper


  1. Bring a large saucepan of lightly salted water to the boil and add the noodles. Cook until just tender.
  2. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large frying pan. Add the garlic and shallots and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring all the time until shallots are soft. Don’t let the garlic brown.
  3. Drain the noodles well. Add the hazelnuts to the pan and fry for about one mnute. Add the rocket leaves and, when they start to wilt, toss in the noodles and heat through.
  4. Season with salt and pepper. Crumble in the goat’s cheese and serve immediately.

Bon Appetit!
