Procedure

- Melt the butter in a medium-sized pan, and stir in the thinly sliced spring onions and the cubed potatoes.

- Stir and cook over a gentle heat so the vegetables soften gently without browning.

- Now stir in the shredded lettuce. Get it all nicely coated with butter.

- Then add the stock, bring to simmering point, cover and cook gently for about 10 minutes or just long enough for the   potatoes to soften.

- Next pour the contents of the saucepan into a liquidiser.

- Add the chopped fresh herbs and the cream and blend until smooth.

- Return the puree to the pan and reheat, tasting and  flavouring with the lemon juice, salt and pepper.

- Serve piping hot with some fresh, crusty wholewheat bread.
