French Style Peas

Who doesn't like Peas must be the most popular vegetable, and the one when frozen that still tastes sweet and delicious. The French prefer tinned Peas, I from time to time get some fresh peas love them but time consuming podding them all, but Boy Oh Boy worth it.

Start with a large knob of Butter in a skillet and just cook off a finely chopped Shallot until it is translucent. I also sometimes use thinly chopped Spring Onion, add a tbsp of Plain Flour and stir, a dash of White wine or Noilly Prat stir all together add your Peas and two cups of Chicken stock.
Cut a gem Lettuce length wise into quarters and add to the pan with some fresh Mint and Parsley, serve straight away, you want to keep some firmness to the lettuce.

It's delicious, you can of course add Leeks or Carrots too.

  2. Oh yes, love peas like this - makes them so sweet
