Late spring is a perfect moment in the life of a vegetable: It's tender, sweet, flavorful, and juicy. Prepare this dish with the freshest vegetables, particularly spring onions, which look like large green onions. The fresh lettuce "melts" gently into the peas and carrots, a true celebration of the season.

How to Make It

Step 1

Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add carrot, sliced onion, shallots, sea salt, and ground black pepper, stirring to combine. Cover and cook 7 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Step 2

Add water and peas; place lettuce leaves on top of mixture. Cover and cook 5 minutes or until peas are tender. Remove from heat; gently stir in 1 tablespoon butter.
