Recipe Ingredients for Braised Lettuce

1/3 of a medium onion
1 clove garlic
1 cup lettuce
1 stalk of celery, halved lengthwise and then chopped
1/4 of a Green Bell Pepper, diced
4 Spring Onions, chopped
1 Cube Knorr Chicken Stock

Recipe Directions for Braised Lettuce

  1. Dice the onion and green pepper. Slice the spring onions and celery. Coarsley chop the lettuce.

  2. Put the garlic and onions in your pan or pot (I used a pot rather than a frying pan, to make it easier when I added water) and fry gently until softened and yellowed. If you need too, add a little margarine or olive oil to stop it from sticking to the pan.

  3. Smells amazing, doesn't it?? Add the lettuce to the pot, along with the celery and green pepper (as these take a while to cook).

  4. After letting it sit for a minute, stir through and then add your chicken stock and enough water to cover the lettuce. I crushed the stock cube over the lettuce and then added the water, but found that I still had a little bit of stock that hadn't dissolved. So I'd recommend mixing the stock in a cup of boiling water, adding that to the pot, and then topping up with some more water if you need to.

  5. Add the rest of the ingredients (herbs, spring onion, salt and pepper or other seasonings, and a splash of Tobasco if you want to use it. I added a few drops and it didn't make it spicy, but the flavour was amazing). Stir together, cover and let simmer for a while, until everything is warmed through and the harder ingredients (like celery) have softened a bit. I left mine around 10 minutes, I think, but it could have been left for 20. The stock will also reduce slightly, mm.

  6. Serve!
