This is an great side with mashed potatoes and chicken! Company loves this one and so does my husband. Not the boring everyday plain peas. These peas are combined with mushrooms and onion in a savory cream sauce.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 2 cups frozen green peas
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
- 1 small chopped onion
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 1 cup light cream
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 pinch ground nutmeg
Fill a small saucepan with one inch of water. Bring to a boil, add peas, and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and set aside.
Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add mushrooms and onions, and cook for a few minutes, or until tender. Sprinkle flour over the mushrooms, and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Gradually stir in cream, and season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Cook, stirring until smooth and thick. Stir in peas, and remove from heat. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
