DIRECTIONS

  • Choose green onions with large bulbs, remove the roots and cut off all green parts, leaving the bulbs whole.
  • When chopped very finely the green stems can be used in place of the chives.
  • Refresh the lettuce, take off all edible outer leaves and cut the heart into quarters.
  • Butter a heavy pan thickly with 1 oz of butter and line with the large lettuce leaves.
  • Add the heart, onions and salt.
  • Peel the carrots, leaving them whole and place in one layer over the vegetables in the pan.
  • Season lightly, sprinkle with sugar, add the rest of the butter cut into small pieces, and 3 tablespoons cold water.
  • Cover closely and place the pan over a low heat for 3 to 4 minutes.
  • As soon as the contents start to sing, reduce the heat to very low, shake the pan but do not uncover and cook for 20 minutes, shaking the pan occasionally.
  • By this time the carrots should be tender but still faintly crisp.
  • Replace the lid and cook for a further 3 to 5 minutes if necessary.
  • Pour the contents of the pan into a heated serving dish, scatter with chopped parsley and chives.
  • Serve immediately.
