Most of us are so used to having lettuce on salads and eaten raw, but in Asia there are dishes where it is cooked like this dish – a simple scalded lettuce in garlic oil.
It’s one of the fastest cooked dishes you will ever make, all you need is to blanch your lettuce then drizzle hot garlic infused oil on top. If you are like me who continuously look for new green vegetable recipes then give this one a shot if you haven’t tried it yet.
