Meghan Markle reveals she grills LETTUCE to boost its flavour in throwback TV interview


IT IS well known that Meghan Markle is a fan of cooking – having shared recipes on her now-defunct blog The Tig, and joined forces with women from the Grenfell community to create a cookbook.

Meghan Markle appeared on a cooking segment on the TODAY show in 2016 with then-host Matt Lauer

Speaking during a cooking segment on the TODAY programme in 2016, the then-Suits actress revealed the unusual way she prepared the vegetable.

Demonstrating how to make a ‘Grilled Caesar Salad with Shrimp’ with former host Matt Lauer, she said: “You can grill lettuce and it has the most amazing flavour.

It holds up. You can grill radicchio, kale, whatever you want.

You want to halve it lengthwise so that it ends up still keeping that base on there because ultimately you can end up holding it like a hand-held salad.”

The presenter – who was fired from NBC show in 2017 amid sexual misconduct claims from multiple women – admitted: “I’ve never heard of that.”

Meghan added: Theyre going to cook really quickly, but again because its a sturdy lettuce its not going to break down.

Youll get a nice char mark.

The Duchess is understood to have begun dating now-husband Prince Harry, 35, in the same year as the TV appearance.

In 2018, the former-Suits actress collaborated on a charity cookbook
