Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups water

  • 1 cup green peas

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1 cup milk, or as needed

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.

Tips

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 milk.
