Bacon, Morels & Pea Tendrils Side Dish

Makes 4 Servings

Morels and pea tendrils are quintessential flavors of spring. This simple sauté marries them through the culinary magic of bacon and lemon. Yum!

You could substitute more mature pea vines for the tendrils, cooking them longer (until tender) rather than stirring them in at the end.

  • 1/4lb Bacon, cut into strips (lardons)
  • 1/3lb Fresh Morel Mushrooms (could substitute reconstituted dried morels)
  • 1lb Micro Pea Tendrils
  • 1 tbsp of Unsalted Butter
  • 1 tsp of Lemon Juice



Crisp the bacon in a frying pan over medium heat.

Saute the morels with the bacon for 3-4 minutes.

Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the pea tendrils, lemon juice and the butter. Serve.
