These peas are delicious served on toast! You could make this using half and half cream or 18% table cream although it will not be a creamy. If you are using water, then you might want to add in 1-2 teaspoons chicken bouillon powder to the water when boiling but that is optional. This complete recipe may be doubled.

This is quite good and DH loved his first helping of creamed peas! I prepared the recipe mostly as written except that I used a little more broth because I wanted to boil some pearl onions before proceeding with the recipe. I decreased the sugar to a teaspoon, too. This is a great recipe that can be changed up many ways. I love creamed peas and onions but it would also be great with potatoes, too. I might even try frying up a little curry powder in the butter before I add the broth and vegetables. Lots of possibilities here! Thanks for another great recipe.

Made these last night and we all loved them!! THIS is the creamed veggie base I have been looking for. Most are so bland. But that could be because I substituted minced garlic for the powder. Oh, and I don't like my peas overcooked so just ran the frozen ones under water to thaw and added them later. Thanks for posting Kittencal!!

Another good recipe from Kit! My hubby approved this recipe and the clincher, my 8 yr old, had seconds. That puts it in the rotation. Made mostly as directed but used skim milk instead of flour since I was out of cream, and I forgot to add the Parmesan. Used drained, canned peas, added 1-4 or so of broth, 1clove fresh finely chopped garlic, butter and heated it all up for a about 5 minutes. Then mixed flour and milk together and added to pot. It quickly thickened. If too thick, add a bit more broth. Thanks Kit!
