Creamy Peas & Onion


Looking for easy cheap comfort food loaded with protein, calcium, and fiber.  This is just what the doctor ordered.  This was made in the Rival Double Crockpot with a Pineapple Crisp cooking right along side it. This Vegetarian Slow Cooker is spending a social weekend with Uncle Meat & Potatoes and Auntie EQ.  Grunting (still growing) Junk Loving Teenager broke his leg playing football and all food must be carried to him at all times by any and all nearby willing and unwilling adults. Did I mention the adults around here are exhausted?   Hopefully, this combo will save us all some time in the kitchen. 

Winner, Loser or Meh

This was wonderful.  I want to go steady with it.  The sauce was so perfect and the Creole Seasoning a must. We all loved  this and it was consumed so fast there were no leftovers.  Even Grunting Junk Loving Teenager asked for more, but it was too late.  All gone.

Recipe

I used a 3 quart crock for this.  This recipe can easily be doubled.

Ingredients:
  • 16 ounces frozen petite green peas
  • 2 Tbls butter
  • 1/4 cup onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 tsp Creole Seasoning
  • 1 tsp flour
  • 1/2 cup light cream
  • 1/2 sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
Add first three ingredients to crock. Stir. Cover and cook on high for 3 hours or low for 6 hours.  Sprinkle flour on pea mixture and stir.  Add cream and cheese and stir well.  Reduce heat to low and cook for 30- 45 minutes.  Sauce will thicken.  Stir to incorporate all ingredients.  Serve warm.

  1. Should it read "first four ingredients"? Is the Creole seasoning put in right at the beginning?
    Thx!
