Braised peas with lettuce with seaweed

The straight-forward addition of Seaspoon Seaweed Boost to this classic recipe shows how easy it can be to add an extra layer of nutrition to your food...with just a simple shake! 

This super quick side dish is dreamy with a Sunday roast or as a side dish to a fresh summer quiche. 

INGREDIENTS

  • small knob butter
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 4 Little Gem lettuces, cut lengthways
  • 200ml stock (veg or chicken)
  • 4 tbsp single cream or crème fraîche
  • 500g frozen peas 
  • 2 tsp Seaspoon Seaweed Boost

METHOD

  1. Fry the onion gently in the butter until softened (about 5 mins).

  2. Place the lettuce halves, cut-side up, on the onions and cook briefly before turning over. Pour in the stock, put on a lid, reduce the heat right down and cook for 10 mins.

  3. Remove the lettuces and then turn up the heat to reduce the juices by half. Add the cream or crème fraîche, peas and Seaweed Boost and heat through.

  4. Place the lettuces on your dish and pour over the sauce.
