1 In a saucepan set over a medium heat, bring stock to near boiling. Reduce heat.
2 In a large frying pan, heat oil over medium. Add onion, garlic and carrot and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add buckwheat and cook, stirring, for 1 minute, to toast the buckwheat. Add wine and stir until evaporated.
3 Add mushrooms to pan and stir to combine.
4 Add hot stock, a half-cup at a time. Stir and allow to evaporate before adding next lot of liquid. After 10 minutes of cooking, add broccoli and stir to combine.
