Lettuce and Peas Recipe

lettuce and peas

Ingredients for Lettuce and Peas:

  • 1 medium onion, finely sliced
  • 2 oz butter
  • 1 lb podded peas
  • ½ pint (285 ml) vegetable stock
  • 2 small or 1 large lettuce, shredded
  • 4 tbsp single cream or crème fraîche
  • 1 bunch mint, finely shredded (optional)

Method for Lettuce and Peas:

  1. Heat a frying pan over a moderate heat, and when hot, add the butter and onion. Fry for 4-5 minutes, until soft.
  2. Add the peas, stir to combine and pour in the stock. Bring up to a simmer before adding the shredded lettuce – stir well and cover with a tight fitting lid.
  3. Simmer for about 5 minutes, checking that the peas are done.
  4. Stir in the single cream or crème fraîche and warm through.
  5. Stir in the mint if using and serve straight away.

Serves 4.

Note: A good way to use up bolting lettuces. You can omit the single cream or crème fraîche if you’re calorie conscious but butter definitely works best for sautéing the onions!
