Green Pea Sauce

This sauce adds a very nice flavor to mashed potatoes, and the combination goes very well along with steak. To reduce the amount of fat in the sauce I like to use evaporated milk. You can use cream instead, but I think the lower-fat-version is just as tasty!

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 1 medium onion, finely diced

  • ¾ teaspoon minced garlic

  • cup frozen peas

  • cup vegetable broth

  • ½ (12 fluid ounce) can canned evaporated milk

  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Warm the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the onion, and cook until nearly tender. Stir in the garlic, and cook for a few seconds, until fragrant. Pour in peas, and stir to thaw. Pour in the vegetable stock and evaporated milk. Turn heat to low, cover, and cook for 5 minutes. Once the peas have cooked, pour them into a blender and puree until smooth.

  2. Pour the pureed sauce back into the skillet, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Simmer over low heat until the sauce reaches desired consistency.
