These were fantastic! I made it with peas and lettuce from our garden as part of my "French feast" with Mustard Garlic Pork Tenderloin, Zucchini Rice Pilaf, and Glazed Carrots (Carottes Vichy). Never had cooked lettuce before and we loved it, although I probably put in more than the called for pepper. Made for ZWT 8!
Ohhhhhhh these are just marvelous, tasty and good for you, too! :) I really enjoyed the different technique. The peas were done to perfection. Thank you!! ~Made for ZWT6 for Zee Zesties~
These are some seriously awesome peas! We did not eat the lettuce after cooking but I did enjoy eating peas cooked this way! Instead of adding a bit of water I added little splashes of chicken broth. We had this for Father's Day dinner with steak and mashed potatoes! Yum! Thanks for posting! Made for The Queens of Quisine ZWT6!
Very good peas - the result was meltingly tender and delicious. I did not serve the lettuce as I just saw it as a vessel for steaming the peas. Thanks.
These are really good. I've had peas with lettuce in them before but never prepared this way, so just had to give this a try. I ended up cutting the lettuce into chunks after cooking and before serving because I thought that it would be easier to eat. Thanks Bethie for a nice treat.

Okay this freaked out me out the way it was prepared but in the end the flavor won everyone over. I did have to use frozen baby petite peas as fresh are out of season. I did try the lettuce and it was not something I enjoyed but that is not what this recipe is about so 5 stars for the flavor and texture of the peas after preparing in this fashion. Made for the I Recommend Tag Game based on Karen's review.
Made with frozen peas, ridiculously easy, DH was fascinated! :D A lovely speedy side dish, very tasty, I didn't serve the lettuce with them this time, but I have prepared and eaten peas and lettuce in a similar (but not the same) fashion before, it is nice to enjoy the lettuce as well! I served this together with Sticky Bacon & Sweet Potato Jackets for a lovely light supper! Thank you Bethie, this was lovely!
Made as posted with frozen petite peas and very easy and delicious! I will be treating myself to these on a regular basis. Thanks for sharing Bethie! Made for Fall 2009 PAC.
What a tasty way to cook peas! I used frozen peas and iceberg lettuce. Thanks for a yummy side dish! Made for the Australian Recipe Swap#16.
