Claire Wright from shares 3 simple ways to prepare peas that the whole family will enjoy.

These French peas are a classic recipe that's classy and yummy. Perfect alongside cooked meat, fish, more veg, or, well, pretty much anything!


Finely slice the spring onions and roughly chop the lettuce. In a frying pan or large saucepan, fry the bacon in the butter for 3-4 minutes until cooked and just starting to crisp up, adding the spring onions for the last minute to soften. Add in the lettuce, peas and half a glass of water or stock (125ml). Simmer for another 2-3 minutes until the lettuce is wilted, peas are cooked, and water or stock has mostly evaporated. Season with salt & pepper (a squeeze of lemon is lovely here, too), and serve with your main course.

Get the kids to tear up the lettuce and show them how to safely stir the ingredients in the pan. Have them half fill a glass with water or stock and help them pour it into the pan carefully.
