Fresh Spring Peas With Butter Lettuce and Dill

Fresh Spring Peas With Butter Lettuce and Dill

Melt the butter in a medium sized skillet. Add the shallot rings and cook for a couple of minutes, until softened but not browned.

Add the peas and cook until they glisten with butter, approximately 1-2 minutes.

Pour in the stock and cook for 1 more minute, until the peas are cooked, but still retain some bite.

Add the lettuce to the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until the lettuce wilts and the liquid has evaporated. There should be just enough liquid left to cover everything in a light glaze. If everything is cooked before the liquid has evaporated, remove the peas and lettuce, and continue to cook the butter and stock to a glaze, before pouring it over the peas.

Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the dill.

Serve immediately, sprinkled with a handful of microgreens.

Peas with Lettuce - Fresh English peas cooked with chicken stock and tender young lettuce is a great early springtime side dish.

Last Saturday BeeBop and I were roaming around one of our favorite shopping places, Sam's Club, and way back in the back past all the other fruits and veggies I spotted something out of the corner of my eye. Could it be? Really? Fresh English peas? In the middle of winter?

As y'all already know, we've had one more miserable winter around here. Snow. Ice. More snow. And so cold. Bone chilling cold - well, for this south Georgia girl it's bone chilling.

So, those packages of bright, green, fresh peas looked like nothing short of a breath of Spring to me! Did I care that they were not even in season? I did not. Did I care that they were shipped here from Guatemala? Nope. All I cared about in that moment was that those peas made me think of Spring. And warmth. And longer days with lots of sunshine. Ahhhh.

I brought two packages of those little green gems home knowing exactly what I wanted to do with them. I've seen lots of recipes for Peas with Lettuce and always thought it looked so inviting. I used a bit of one recipe and a bit of another and some of my own to create this dish for dinner last night. It was delicious and helped me remember that Spring really is just around the corner.
