Pois Francais
15th October, 2017

Pois Francais is without doubt one of my all favourite side dishes. Not only is it very simple to cook but it’s always a great joy to eat as well.

I’m sure these will become a firm family favourite in your household as well


  • 1 Tbsp Oil
  • 250g Bacon (diced) or Pancetta
  • 1 medium Onion, sliced
  • 1 clove Garlic, finely chopped
  • 50g Butter
  • 500g Frozen Peas
  • 80mls Chicken Stock
  • 2 Baby gem lettuce, shredded


    You can use bacon or pancetta but I much prefer bacon as pancetta can sometimes be overpowering. Add the oil to a frying pan and over a medium heat cook the bacon/pancetta until crisp.

    When crisp, add in the butter and onion and keep cooking for another 5 minutes as you only want to soften the onion. Add the garlic and continue to cook for another minute.

    Add the peas and the stock to pan and cook for a few minutes as the peas defrost and cook

    Just at the end, add in the shredded lettuce and cook for a minute

    Serve and enjoy
