Classic French peas or petits pois à la Française: braised lettuce, peas and spring onions...
Add the olive oil and a teaspoon of the butter to a large non-stick pan. Place it over medium heat until melted, then add the chopped onion and garlic.
Stir and cook for 3 minutes until the onion is a little soft. In the meantime clean the spring onions. Remove the outer layer, chop off the roots and upper toughest dark green parts. Cut the spring onions in half and rinse them.
Rinse and drain the butter lettuce. Shred it up roughly. Add the frozen peas to the pan. Season with a dash of pepper and salt to taste.
Stir the peas and cook them for 3 minutes until almost thawed. Then add the white parts of the spring onions.
Stir well and cook for 4 minutes. Then add the shredded lettuce and the remaining butter to the pan.
Cover and cook for 3 more minutes. Check the seasoning and add extra pepper or salt to taste. Stir the vegetables one last time. Then transfer them to bowls and serve.
