Method

Boil the leeks in salted water for 6 mins until tender, but still holding their shape. Drain, leaving a little water in the pan, then return the leeks to the pan. Place over a low heat and stir in the peas and butter, cooking until the butter has melted and the peas are hot. Add the lemon juice, season with salt and pepper and serve straight away.

tasted horrible! Also when i added the butter the peas went a weird colour like i'd overcooked them - not too appetising.

Easiest meal I’ve made. I added a few extra vegetables.

Like the idea of this but felt the timings were rather out - the leeks needed longer than stated, by which time the peas were overcooked! I would probably steam the leeks next time.
