  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  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.

Creamed peas! Excellent, quick and perfect for two. I used new garden peas (sold in a bag at grocers), next time maybe a little less milk, but oh so good! I served with a new recipe for a sal...

Very good basic recipe. Thanks for posting.

I added a very generous amount of parmesan, some garlic salt, and some pepper and it was lovely.
