Calories: 292 per portion

ingredients

serves 6
1 tablespoon olive oil
18 very small onions, shallots, or large spring onions
3 garlic cloves, very finely chopped
3 fresh poussins, about 350 g (12 oz) each, halved down the backbone
175 ml (6 fl oz) dry white wine
350 ml (12 fl oz) hot water
salt and pepper
1 kg (2 1/4 lb) peas, shelled weight

method

1. Heat the oil in a large heavy-based non-stick frying pan and fry the garlic and onions until light golden, then remove.

2. Fry the poussins, turning frequently until sealed and browned all over, then add the wine. As soon as it boils, add the water and salt and pepper to taste.

3. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes, then uncover and simmer for another 20 minutes, adding the peas and onions about 8 minutes before cooking is completed.

Frozen peas are much higher in fibre than fresh ones. Fibre is considered to be a good means of maintaining good health. It is only found in foods of vegetable origin.
