Three Types of Peas with Bacon and Leeks Print Email

½ pound snap peas, trimmed
½ pound snow peas, trimmed
1 cup fresh or frozen English peas
1 medium leek, halved then thinly sliced
2 strips of bacon, sliced into ½ inch pieces
Salt and pepper

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Blanch the snap peas for about 1-2 minutes, or until just tender. Transfer to an ice bath. Repeat the process with the snow peas and english peas. Pat dry with a paper towel.

Heat a large pan over medium, then add the bacon. Cook until the bacon is crisp and browned. Remove the bacon from the pan, drain on a paper towel. Discard most of the bacon fat from the pan until you’re left with a few teaspoons. Place the leek in the pan, season with salt and pepper and saute until the leek is tender and slightly browned, about 3-4 minutes. Add all the peas to the pan, toss to coat with the leek mixture. Cook until the peas are warmed through, season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle the reserved bacon over the top and serve. Serves 4 -
