Lovely, light summery dish made using shallots, buttery lettuce, peas, bacon and a good dollop of mustard.
3 rashers of bacon – cut into small pieces
2 x shallots – finely chopped
1 large head of buttery lettuce – finely sliced and chopped
2 cups of frozen peas
1 cup chicken broth
1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
Heat a skillet/frying pan and when nice and hot add the bacon and let brown for a few minutes, then add shallots and let them brown a little too.
Then add lettuce, peas, broth and mustard. Bring to boil and simmer for 5 minutes.
