These lettuce recipes are not boring, we promise

Take a leaf out of the lettuce cookbook. You'll be pleasantly surprised.

Is lettuce the most underrated vegetable we know? Fresh, it's a crisp vessel for sang choi bau (just see Kylie Kwong's wallaby version), or holds its own in a simple salad with a well-mixed dressing. Cooked? It gets even better. Try Vincent's braised lettuce polonaise with cured egg yolk and parmesan crumb for a dinner party starter, or grilled some cos hearts and top with a rich anchovy-butter dressing. Out hot tip? Simply stir-fried with chilli and bacon. You won't regret it.
