Creamed Potatoes and Peas

 Posted by Jennifer (the student) on May 3, 2012

This is a dish my mom used to make but she used cream and butter. I used to love it but have not had it in years. I tried to make it healthier and just as tasty as the old version. I hope you enjoy it!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 ½ pounds new potatoes (I quartered mine because they were fairly large)
  • 10 oz peas (I used Trader Joe’s English Peas)
  • 1 cup almond milk (or any milk you like)
  • 1 TBSP all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • ½ tsp herbes de provence
  • lemon pepper (just a sprinkle)
  • sea salt and fresh ground pepper (to taste)

DIRECTIONS

  1. In large stockpot, steam potatoes until fork tender.
  2. In small saucepan, add peas and about a ¼ cup of water and cook over medium heat for a few minutes. Drain excess water and set aside.
  3. In large saucepan, combine milk, flour and cornstarch. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer until sauce thickens.
  4. To sauce add herbes de provence, lemon pepper, sea salt and fresh ground pepper.
  5. Add potatoes and peas into cream sauce. Combine ingredients. Serve.
