Creamed Peas

Diana Rattray
These creamed peas are easy to prepare and cook with a simple white sauce and seasonings. A little onion and pimiento give them extra color and flavor.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Total Time: 22 minutes

Yield: Serves 4


  • 3/4 cup thinly sliced onion rings or thin strips
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 to 2 1/2 cups frozen peas, about 10 to 12 ounces
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • dash salt
  • dash pepper
  • dash nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon diced pimiento
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream


Combine onion, water, and 1 teaspoon salt in saucepan. Bring to a boil and boil for 7 minutes. Add peas and cook for 5 minutes longer, or until peas are just tender. Drain and reserve 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid.

In a saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Add flour and seasonings, stirring until smooth and bubbly. Add the pimiento, cream and 1/2 cup of reserved liquid from vegetables. Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened. Add the vegetables and heat through.

My first ever creamed peas, Member Bmenzjo

My parents live with me and my 92 year old dad said the other day his mother made creamed peas (this after I always serve them ""plain.""). So I searched about.com and used this recipe. I didn't have pimentos, had frozen peas with pearl onions; so I didn't use sliced onions and pimentos. Otherwise, the ingredients were what I had on hand and the recipe was easy to follow. My dad got second helpings!
