This was okay. It was a nice healthy recipe. But, it wasn't the best. They turned out soft enough to eat though and I wasn't expecting that. It needs more seasonings. It was a little bland. But, it tasted a little sweet which is good a thing with our family.

Unusual but very successful! Its now my new way to cook peas. Not boiling the peas, kept them so sweet and they didn't lost any taste from all the water. Thanks so much for sharing littleturtle!

Unusual recipe; the peas were tender and did cook nicely in the lettuce. Posted for ZWT3.

Neat way to cook the peas! I really loved how the peas came out tender, but not "mushy". I will continue to cook frozen peas this way from now on! Made for Zaar World Tour.

Very nice! The Peas turned out sweet and tender. As another reviewer said resist the urge to add water. It is the unique cooking method with the lettuce leaves that make these just pop! Thanks for sharing! :)

Resist the urge to add more water to this recipe, I think that's the point for including the lettuce. While the cooking technique was interesting and the peas turned out green, plump and sweet, I thought it needed something else, like some herbs or lemon or something. This would be an excellent base for a sauce appropriate for peas. Thank you, sorry I could not rate this higher.

This is excellent. I had this decades ago, over an open campfire. I had never heard of using a lettuce leaf over the peas. I don't care for peas, but this was wonderful. I'm so glad I found it again to remind me of this excellent way to prepare peas.
