Directions

  1. Bring water, peas, and salt to a boil in a saucepan; cook until peas are just tender, about 2 minutes. Drain and return peas to saucepan. Reduce heat to medium and stir in flour. Add butter and enough milk to barely cover peas. Cook and stir until thickened, 5 to 10 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • You can use whatever milk or cream you desire. Adjust to the amount of peas and creaminess that you desire. I also add a pinch of black pepper and stir in just before serving. Also good with a slice of American cheese added with the milk.

I usually make a white sauce and then add the cooked peas to it, but this worked OK adding the flour and milk to the peas and then thickening. I used only 1/2 cup of milk, and it was the perfect consistency for us, so I would caution you about adding a full cup. Start with less and then add more if needed. Nice basic recipe for creamed peas.

To bring out the taste of the peas, add a teaspoon or so of sugar. Also, a little fresh parsley. You can skip the part about cooking the peas first- just cook them in the butter until they thaw, and just start to cook through, then add the flour, salt, and milk.

Good! Used 1/2 c. milk and a dash of pepper as suggested by the previous reviewer, and a slice of american cheese as mentioned in the "note". Also added a shake of spicy seasoned salt for a little added flavor.
