Lambs Lettuce



Price per pack


Lambs lettuce is such a handy little leaf to throw into a sandwich or add as a side.

Mache as the French call it is the entire tiny plant and sometimes you will see the root attached. It is one of the few leafy greens we have which contains Omega 3.

Lamb’s lettuce has its origins as a weed which was found growing among cereal crops in Europe. By all accounts it should be an unremarkable plant – the leaves are small and the plants rarely grow bigger than a single low-lying rosette a few inches in diameter. Unlike most weeds it grows slowly and you need a lot of plants to get a reasonable crop. However it is another healthy leafy green for us to make use of. Mache is also supercharged with vitamin C, in fact, on an ounce-by-ounce basis, mache contains almost as much vitamin C as lemon juice!!

For the more adventurous, try serving them in the traditional French style with beetroot and a walnut oil dressing.


Lamb’s lettuce has long spoon-shaped dark leaves, with a tangy, distinctive flavour. It is mainly used raw in salads but can also be steamed and served as a vegetable. Once purchased, wash and drain lamb’s lettuce thoroughly, otherwise it can be quite grainy and gritty. Store in an airtight plastic bag in the fridge or in a bowl covered with a plate.
