       Title: PETITS POIS A LA FRANCAISE
  Categories: Vegetables
       Yield: 4 servings
  
       1 lb Frozen Peas
     1/2    Lettuce Heart
       6    Spring Onions
       8 fl Double Cream
       1 oz Butter
            Salt and Pepper
     1/2 c  Water
  
   Shred the lettuce into little ribbons with a sharp
   knife. Clean and shred the spring onions. Put the
   butter into a good solid pan with a lid. Add the
   onions and lettuce. If using fresh peas, add them and
   about half a cup of water and cook gently for about 10
   minutes. If using frozen, let the spring onions and
   lettuce cook on their own for about 7 or 8 minutes,
   then add the peas and cook for a further 2 or 3
   minutes. Don't add water there is enough in the frozen
   peas already.
   
   Pour in the double cream, balance the seasoning and
   bring to the boil, but don't let it cook for more than
   a minute more. The peas will be green, firm and
   surrounded in the most delicious and wicked sauce.
   Serve either with plain grilled meat or as a dish on
   its own in little bowls with good bread.
