Directions

  1. Special Equipment: Take out your large sauté pan that has a cover! You will need to cover when simmering the peas! If you do not have a cover then use foil.
  2. Heat your sauté pan and add 1/2 teaspoon of coconut or olive oil. Cut your pancetta into small cubes. Cook until crispy. Put in a bowl to the side.
  3. In the same sauté pan add the butter and remainder of oil. Then add coconut flour and stir around (I like to use a small whisk). Slowly add the stock.
  4. Add the spring onions and peas season with red pepper flakes, salt and pepper.
  5. Put the lid on and simmer for 5 minutes or until tender. Taste for any additional seasoning, add lemon juice and just when you are about to serve drizzle with a little olive oil.
