Serbajadi Lettuce - Lactuca sativa L. (Compositae)
Leaf Lettuce, commonly called "loose leaf", is an annual with cylindrical stem and a vigorous grower producing an abundance of tasty, attractive, frilly green leaves. Lettuce is the starting point for every good salad. It is also a basic in sandwiches, and as a decorative garnish for other foods. It is nutritious, yet low in calories. That is why it is so popular for dieters, and for those who want to stay trim. Dieting and health issues aside, we eat lettuce because it tastes good! Although you can serve the vegetable in a number of ways, the best is to eat it raw as all the vitamins and minerals will be retained. You can also cook it like any other vegetable; added to soups and stir-fries. The best way is to braise it: cut the lettuce into the desired size. Fry in a little oil. Add a little water and cover the pan for a few minutes. You can also blanch it by just immersing the lettuce in boiling water for a few seconds before removing it.
