Delicious Classic Creamed Peas Recipe

     


Creamed peas are one of those recipes that remind me of when I was a child.  It is a super comforting dish that is simple to make but is delicious for any day of the week or as a lovely side dish to a holiday meal.  We enjoy it so much that I serve it several times a month.  

 


 

·         4 c. frozen peas, thawed or canned peas

·         2 c. milk

·         1/3 c. heavy cream

·         3 T. butter

·         3 T. all-purpose flour

·         ½ tsp. sugar

·         ½ tsp. pepper

·         ¼ tsp. salt

·         ¼ tsp. onion powder

·         ¼ tsp. garlic powder

In a medium sized saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.  Whisk in the flour, onion powder and garlic powder.  Whisk until the mixture is smooth.  Turn the heat to medium-high and then slowly whisk in the milk.  Keep stirring until the mixture thickens, which will probably take 4-5 minutes.  Stir in the sugar, salt and pepper.   Add in the peas and the heavy cream and stir and heat another 2-3 minutes and then serve. 

 


 

Serves 8 with each serving having about 15 carbs each.

     Serves with some of my other great side dishes such as: Broccoli & Cheese Risotto, Blue Ribbon Winning Baked Beans, or my Creamy Potato Casserole.
